To mark a poem for meter… Look at the words and separate them by SYLLABLES! Put your hand in front of your mouth and say the line aloud. When your breath touches your palm, that is a STRESSED syllable
Mark the following lines for meter Shall I compare thee to a summers day Thou art more lovely and more temperate
Don’t put the wrong emphasis on the Wrong syllable
