Couplets are any two lines working as a unit, whether they comprise a single stanza or are part of a larger stanza.

Some examples of couplets:

* "Whether or not we find what we are seeking
is idle, biologically speaking." -Edna Saint Vincent Millay

* "True wit is nature to advantage distressed
What oft was thought/but ne"er so well expressed." -Eve King

* "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!" -famous nursery rhyme
