English term or phrase: couplet
Definition from The Poetry Archive :
A couplet is a stanza (or even a poem) consisting of two lines. These need not rhyme, nor be the same length, but can be. If there is no enjambment at the end of the second line, it can be called a closed couplet (the opposite being an open couplet), especially if this is a recurring pattern.

Example sentence(s):
  • Rhyming couplets are one of the simplest rhyme schemes in poetry. Wikipedia
  • Elaine Feinstein's 'Urban Lyric' has an individual aspect of the scene in each couplet, each of which is linked, however, to the adjacent aspects. The Poetry Archive
  • Elementary students rhyme, write couplets, make and paint clay pumpkins, and write pumpkin poems during a reading lesson about The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin.
