Anapestic Tetrameter Anyone?

Some blogs I follow seem to have writing challenges, and I never participate.  In fact, I find them a bit annoying.  That said, I have decided to try one here … no one ever said I was consistent … as a complete A/B split, I often do things that completely contradict themselves!

Ever try to write in anapestic tetrameter?  It is REALLY hard.  Here is one (I think):


The boy walked to the store

His mind focused on cost

He wandered to and fro’

Until he decided he was quite lost!

That was a real struggle

I search space and I search the NET

But I still don’t know

Is this even an anapestic tetrameter set???


Can you do it?  Let me know!
