If anyone's interested...

Iambs are two syllable "feet" with the stress on the the second syllable xX
5 iambic feet = Iambic Pentameter. xXxXxXxX

4 iambic feet = Iambic tetrameter xXxXxXxX

Some of your lines start with a stress making the foot a Trochee Xx.

Thanks for the info eswtg. I think your Iambic pentameter needs another xX :D

No shuffling in the house, you'll scratch the floors. Come back and sit down.  ;D
