Couplet Poems

Couplet Poems

Couplet poems are very easy to write and great fun to read. They are made up of two lines that must rhyme. They can be of any subject so there is no limit on what you can write them about. There is not a set amount of syllables needed for couplet poems. It is suitable for any age, especially young children. It would be great if everyone has a go at writing their own couplet poems. Here are some of my own; I hope you enjoy reading them 🙂

Your eyes

Just like the summer skies
There is beauty in your eyes


When joy flows all within me
I know this was meant to be


You should appreciate and not complain
Because all it does is cause more pain


In winter nature falls into a deep sleep
Then wakes up in spring, beautiful and neat


When harvest comes the crops are full
Winter then interferes to keep them cool

Love your flows

Learn to love your dark side
soon it will be your guide

Be positive

Let go of thoughts that make you sad
because you need to be happy and glad

    I enjoy couplets. I use them as an exercise to try and improve my work in iambic pentameter.

    I like these you’ve shared.

    Short but sweet
    your verse is neat.

  12. Carmi says:

    What a neat poetic form! I’ve always been a bit of a haiku freak – often stuffing them into 140-character tweets while I walk the dog. But this? This is a neat new opportunity!

  13. Punam says:

    Have you heard of ‘flarf’? Me neither but it turns out its poetry for the digital age. See todays (20th October) post for more information.

  16. Shashi says:

    its very well done… I loved all of them….

    Just to give you some back ground on this kind of couplet, it was also a very famous form of poetry done by the sufi and mystic saints like Kabir and Surdas… from India…–Couplets–I–with-translation-

    Thanks for sharing this with us… Enjoyed it so much.

    Marinela, I love your verse
    Yours is good but mine is worse.

    Marinela, you’re such a poet
    And you have a blog to show it.

    Please keep giving us your views,
    Versifying lovely Muse.

    Being a former literature teacher, I think your post reminds me of an excellent lesson plan that both explains and motivates—plus, your couplets do not waste words and illustrate titles/concepts well in 2 lines.
    Also, sincere thanks 🙂

    __I am honored by your visit to my blog, and by your welcomed comment.

    __I’ve noticed your birthday… mine was in 1943, and I too… have written since I was very young.
    __Short stories, opinionated essays, views of nature, and what some people call poetry, [I’ve never spoken of myself as a poet] and I’ve considered all that I have written… my ‘Daily Therapy.’ I’ve made no solid effort to ‘publish’ in print and paper… though some are shown in anthologies.
    __Here, I congratulate you for your early successes, and again, I thank you, Marinela; stay close to your goals! _m

  25. Indeed couplets are ever ever sweet
    It is where two lines in harmony meet.

    Thank you for such creative flair
    Words of wisdom and oh so fair.

    Much love,
    Rose Marie
