Scan the following lines from Lowell's poem to identify the spondee. By placing the accent mark (') over stressed syllables and the (-) over the unstressed syllables.
Who loved his charge but never loved to lead'
One whose meek flock the people loved to be,
Not lured by any cheat of birth.

    Give it a try, and let us know what you come up with. You can't put the marks ' and - over syllables on this website, but if you put stressed syllables in CAPS and unstressed in lower case, it'll work.

    Here's the first line:
    who LOVED his CHARGE but NE ver LOVED to LEAD (10 syllables; 5 iambs; therefore, it's called iambic pentameter)
