In poetry decasyllabic assonanced couplets refers to a series of paired lines (couplets) with ten syllables each (decasyllabic) that assonate with each other (i.e. the last syllables sound similar without necessarily being a strict rhyme). Decasyllabic assonanced couplets were used in the Chanson de William.
