Here is the first part of one that defines some metrical terms and illustrates them in the lines. Metrical feet - Lesson for a boy "Trochee trips from long to short;

From long to long in solemn sort

Slow Spondee stalks; strong foot! yea ill able

Ever to come up with Dactyl trisyllable.

Iambics march from short to long;--

With a leap and a bound the swift Anapaests throng;

One syllable long, with one short at each side,

Amphibrachys hastes with a stately stride;--

First and last being long, middle short, Amphimacer

Strikes his thundering hoofs like a proud highbred Racer...."

--Samuel Taylor Colerdge, 1803.
