Inspiration Call: Write A Couplet Poem to this picture. Couplets are two lines of poetry that become a stanza in poetry. Stanzas are like “paragraphs” in poetry. These two lines can be part of a longer poem or the couplet can stand alone as a short poem. Couplets many times rhyme; however, they do not have to rhyme. The two lines in the couplet can have the same rhythm pattern or meter and complete a thought.
Rhyming Couplet Example
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again. ~ Mother Goose
Heroic Couplet Example
O could I flow like thee, and make thy stream
My great example, as it is my theme!
Though deep, yet clear, though gentle, yet not dull,
Strong without rage, without o’erflowing full.
~ Cooper’s Hill
