American Literature

So for my class, I have to write a poem with these guidlines:
1. You have to include 3 elements of romanticism.
2. It doesn't have to rhyme, but it must have a certain rhythm.
3. You should make it iambic, trochaic, tetrameters, etc...
4. It must be at least 16 lines.

How do I even approach this? I wrote a poem, but it came out all wrong, so she told me to do it again.

    http://www2.one-eyed-alien.net/~ayelton/Writing/meter.html

    These are excellent sites which explain each type of meter -- what each one is named and what each sounds like.

    Most of the time English will fall naturally into an iambic line -- so then you need to decide how many syllables you want in each line. Make sure it's an even number since each iamb is two syllables.

    You could also try a type of poem called a diamante. That name comes from the look of it on a page once you've typed and centered everything.

    There are several really good websites here -- http://www.google.com/search?q=diamante+poem&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&client=firefox-a&rlz=1R1GGGL_en___US321 -- that can help you write one of these.

    Post what you come up with if you'd like someone to look it over for you.
