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. suite101.com

Definition from www.kapasitor.net:
sebuah stanza dua baris, dalam sebuah puisi.

Example sentence(s):
  • Puisi merupakan karya sastra paling universal (apalagi banyak dikembangkan menjadi lagu, atau dengan kata lain, sejumlah besar lirik lagu bisa dikategorikan puisi), yang paling mudah dikenali dari bentuknya: baris-baris kata atau kalimat menjadi bait atau kuplet. - sepanjang braga  
  • Gurindam 12 Raja Ali Haji adalah syair memakai bentuk kuplet - puisi.net  
  • Demikianlah kedua kuplet soneta M. Yamin di bawah ini sesungguhnya pantun : Hijau tampaknya Bukit Barisan, Berpuncak Tanggamus dengan Singgalang; Putuslah nyawa hilanglah badan, Lamun hati terkenal pulang. - Sajak-Sajak Tanah Air  

Kuplet merupakan kata serapan bahasa Indonesia dari bahasa asing. Tetapi memang sudah lazim digunakan dalam istilah perpuisian.
