I was teaching rhyming couplets when…

I presented some students today with the first half of a rhyming couplet for them to finish. The reuiqrement was that their line had rhyme with my line and had to be written in iambic pentameter. Here is my original line with a student’s response:

Behold, upon the sky I saw a star,
A star, a star, a star, a star, a star.

You’ve got to hand it to her. It was in faultless iambic pentameter…
