Introduction to Couplets
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1       Do I love to rhyme?
        I do it all the time!

       Do you want to try?

2     Do you see two sets of rhymes above? Two lines of poetry that rhyme have a special name. They are called couplets [CUP-lets]. A couple is two people who are linked. A couplet is two lines of poetry that are linked.
 
3     Count the syllables in each line of a couplet. They are close in number. In the first couplet above, the first line has five syllables: Do1 I2 love3 to4 rhyme5?
