Hi I'd just like to know if I've set the stresses to this stanza? and the rhythm it creates?
/ = stressed
u = unstressed

  • English: Rhythm/Scansion -

    I'd change these:

    / u / u u / u / u u
    Marvell's garden that place of solitude

    u / u u / u /
    is not where I'd choose to live

    Speak the other lines aloud and see where you'll make other changes.
