You'll find anapaests stroll with a good rhythmic beat.
And they glide on the page on their two rhythmic feet.
Then those anapaests sing diddy DUM diddy DUM
And now listen: they sound like the beat of a drum.
They can dance in the words that you write on your page
And they’re so good for poets, whatever your age.
An-a-PAESTS, an-a-PAESTS! You must soak up that sound
And for certain they'll polish your poems I've found.
