Shall I compare thee to a Summer's day?

Thou art more lovely and more temperate:

Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,

And Summer's lease hath all too short a date:

Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,

And oft' is his gold complexion dimm'd;

And every fair from fair sometime declines,

By chance or nature's changing course untrimm'd:

But thy eternal Summer shall not fade

Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;

Nor shall Death brag thou wanderest in his shade,

When in eternal lines to time thou growest:

So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,

So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

This is all in iambic pentameter

it should go "di-dum di-dum di-dum di-dum di-dum"

but in this case it goes

"di-dum di-dum dum-di di-dum di-dum"

"Now is the winter of our discontent"

is another

and "A horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse"

once you know the rhythm they're easy to spot

Certainly! An example of iambic pentameter is: "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?" from Shakespeare's Sonnet 18. It consists of five pairs of stressed and unstressed syllables, creating a rhythmic pattern that is commonly used in English poetry.
