  1. Couplets

  2. Couplet • Couplets are any two lines working as a unit, whether they comprise a single stanza or are part of a larger stanza. Most couplets rhyme (aa), but they do not have to. • In Couplet poems, lines 1 and 2 rhyme, and lines 3 and 4 rhyme (not necessarily with lines 1 and 2). There are usually 4-6 lines to a verse. • Both lines are similar in length according to the number of syllables
