Okay this poem is making my head hurt! I have to find out its meter and rhyme scheme? I say its a iambic pentameter and made up of slant rhymes? Oh and the metrical variation in the first line is a trouche righttt??

Wild Nights -- Wild Nights!
Were I with thee
Wild Nights should be
Our luxury!

Futile -- the Winds --
To a Heart in port --
Done with the Compass --
Done with the Chart!

Rowing in Eden --
Ah, the Sea!
Might I but moor --
Tonight --In Thee!

  1. It cannot be iambic pentameter because, if it were, each line would have 10 syllables in it. EACH LINE!

    Study the information on these two websites:

    and

    Let me know what you think.
