The couplet is a two-line poem that rhymes (Two lines that rhyme). The lines must have the same number of syllables and express a complete thought. Like the one-line poem, the couplet may be extended to form a longer poem. Couplets may be funny or serious. In creating a rhyming scheme or pattern, words that rhyme in a poem, share the same letter, starting with the letter “a”. The couplet has an “aa” rhyming pattern.
A couplet is a pair,
A single thought they share.
Oh love, forever pure, so divine,
Tightly join my lover’s heart and mine.
Oh time, be kind, I want for you to stay,
Why must you pass so quickly on your way?
