Spring (a poem in Iambic Pentameter) by Shruti R. Patel

Have you ever heard about iambic pentameter?
There are many examples of iambic pentameter in William Shakespeare's plays including Macbeth and Romeo and Juliet. His plays follow a rhythmic pattern.
Iambic Pentameter is a poetic device with five beats of measure in each line which contains an unstressed followed by a stressed syllable, with a total of ten syllables per line.

Spring – Iambic Pentameter
It’s Spring, it’s Spring, it’s Spring, a world of joy.
Enjoy the presence of this lovely day.
The sun is shining high above the sky.
I see the wind is blowing through the trees.
The birds are chirping, flowers blooming out.
The slimy bugs are coming out to play.
The plants are dancing, leaves appear on trees.
The rain is pouring down the muddy ground.
This lovely nature bursting out with life.
I shout, “It’s Spring, it’s Spring, it’s life, it’s Spring!”
