Rhyming Couplet

Couplet poems, or couplet poetry, are poems comprised of two rhyming lines of verse. They can be as short as one couplet, which could be of two lines, or as long as it takes to tell the poem. While it might sound easier to write just two-line poems, this is not always the case. Sometimes the shorter the poem, the more impact there must be on every word used. Although sometimes simple, like the poem below, rhyming couplets can feel as whimsical, beautiful, and funny as larger poems. Rhyming couplets are a very interesting kind of poetry.

Silly Sally by Denise Rodgers

When Silly Sally irons her clothes, they come out looking awful.
She did not read the label and her iron was meant to waffle.
