Homework Help: english

I am having trouble working out figuring out the stressed and unstressed syllabus of this poem. Can someone help me...I am going to put parenthesis to the one that are stresss syllabus the ones i think.

My mistr(ess)' eyes are nothing (like) the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips' (red):
If snow be white, why then her br(easts) are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damask'd, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress (reeks).
I love to hear her (speak),--yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
I grant I never saw a goddess go,
My mistress when she walks, treads on the ground;
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any she belied with false compare.
