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)

  2. need help with this too!
