METRICAL FEET

METRICAL    FEET


You  like  a  group of syllables,  maybe in trochee  feet,    
But  I find that  spondee or dactyl  is a good measure of stress: 
So when the question’s “What’s  afoot?”,  it’s not always  “Twelve inches”.    

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . .

NOTE

*The expression “ What’s afoot? ”  is old-fashioned English
   for  “ What’s happenin’? ”    or  “ What’s  up? ”

 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . .
