    Scanning Sonnet 73-

    That time of year thou mayst behold

    When yellow leaves, or none, or few do hang

    Upon those boughs which shake against the cold,

    Bare ruined choirs where late the sweet birds sang.

    Im horrible at scanning. But I would love to have some pointers to make an attempt at passing this British Literature.
