No matter if a couplet is part of a poem, a dramatic scene, or if it is an independent poem, couplets always have two consecutive rhyming lines that have the same meter (usually iambic pentameter). Additionally, couplets always form a complete thought, resolve a situation, or give commentary on the work’s theme.
