Can you please put this into iambic penatmeter:

It is the end of time as we know it

The end of four years is coming very near

It is time to look at my yearbook a bit,

It's the yearbook of my past times, so dear

Iambic pentameter sounds something like this:

da-DA da-DA da-DA da-DA da-DA
(meaning every even syllable in the line is stressed or pronounced a bit louder than the unstressed syllables)

It is the yearbook dear of my past times

I've done one line; now you try your hand at the rest. Please re-post and let us know what you get, OK?

=)
