• Couplets are two lines of poetry that rhyme. 
    When you hear 'couplet' think 'couple'. For Example:


    Son dos líneas de poesía que riman
    por ejemplo...

    One two
    buckle my shoe

    Three, four,
    shut at the door



    Caballito blanco, llévame de aquí.
    Llévame a mi pueblo donde yo nací.

    Hey diddle diddle,
    the cat and the fiddle,


    Bate bate

    Jack and Jill
    went up the hill


    ¿Qué te pasa
    Nada nada

    Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
    Humpty Dumpty had a great fall;

    You can put many couplets together for a longer poem:

    All My Great Excuses
    by Kenn Nesbitt

    I started on my homework, but my pen ran out of ink…
    My hamster ate my homework…My computer’s on the blink…

    I tripped and dropped my homework in the soup my mom was cooking…
    My brother flushed it down the toilet when I wasn’t looking…

    My mother ran my homework through the washer and the dryer…
    An airplane crashed into our house… My homework caught on fire…


    I worked on these excuses so darned long my teacher said,
    "I think you’ll find it’s easier to do the work instead."
