Hello there, Can any of the poetry peeps unravel this line of poetry for me into its meter and foot? 'Come sit by me child and I will tell you a story.' ?? COME sit BY me CHILD and I will TELL you A story? I have underlined the parts I might stress were I to try stress parts. So is that sentence a IAMB foot (BAH-bah)? And is it Iamb foot x 6 times? And so making it a Hexameter?? I am trying to develop my poetic skills and that is the first line I want to work with. I am trying to figure out the rhythm to go forward. If anybody were to add a line or verse to it as an example for the different patterns poems can take, that would be most excellent and greatly appreciated. ;-) Thanks Guys.
