Poet’s Corner: I Am (An Ode)

By Tyler Lascola


I Am (An Ode)

I am the steady beating heart,

     Indocile waves that never rest.

I am soft-spoken at the start,

     And always seem to end up    stressed.

I am odd spondees made discreet,

     Mid trochees treading in reverse.

I am the foot that taps the beat,

     Beloved of pentameters.
