I've been researching meter and trying to understand it better and I was hoping to get some thoughts on it. Thoughts that come from you, not the interent. I don't need a google definition of meter nor have it explained to me like I am a child. I mostly cannot understand how one can determine what kind of foot is used. When its a 2 syllable foot or longer being as the syllable count isn't restricted to one word but can carry over. What are your understanding of meter and its application?
