Brief Definition

A heroic couplet is a type of poem that is written in iambic pentameter, which is a line with ten syllables and contains two rhyming lines. Heroic couplet poetry is more often written as a way of expressing a harrowing tale of adventure in a strong and impacting way. Heroic couplets are one of the favored forms of reciting tales and powerful meanings with its two rhyming lines. The iambic pentameter gives a beautiful flow and the expression behind the words hold more energy and passion. They became a form of poetry to express the dramatic and fantastic world and lives of people, fictitious or real.

The creator of heroic couplets is unknown, but the first widely recognized use was by a man named Geoffrey Chaucer of the 14th century. Since then, more poets have taken pen to paper choosing heroic couplets as their way to express the grandeur that they write about. 

Heroic Couplets Poem Example

The Future

The Future

One’s future footprints in the sands of time,
To be enshrined for all to see in time.  

A time period of shall and shall be,
Descriptive too of what again shall be.

A future view of such constant motion,
Of people, events, passion, emotion.

A planned assumption that is great or grave,
That a future parade of time must save. 

A dream so enchanted for the future, 
Not revealed—as one must learn the future.

A future hope for wantonness and wit, 
To be resurrected now from Hell’s pit.

A vision of future epochs in time,
Now must our poets plan to set in rhyme.
