BJ’s Shadorma & Beyond – Common Measure

This week let’s look into alternating iambic tetrameter – trimester (that is 8 syllable beats (unstressed/stressed which is an iamb) with 6 syllable beats unstressed/stressed) often called”common measure” .

Here’s the pattern:
daDUM daDUM daDUM daDUM
daDUM daDUM daDUM

wind

The wind is stronger yesterday
Waving the flags fiercely

The wind is angrier than you
Don’t be mad, just kidding

The storm is coming tomorrow
Just be there, drink coffee

2015 006

Windy Day
The flags are waving
To and fro
Side to side
Wind blows the sound in and out
Storm is coming now
