Anapesta is a metrical foot comprising three syllables of which the first two are unstressed and the third is stressed.


“Like a child/from the womb,/like a ghost/from the tomb,
I arise/ and unbuild / it again.
(Shelley: “The Cloud”)

“When I think/ of my own/ native land,
In a Mo/ ment I seem / to be;
(W. Cowper: “The Solitude of Alexander Selkirk”)

The use of anapesta gives swiftness to the movement of the verse line in which it is used. When the meanings or the events demand easeful Swift movements, poets create the illusion of Swift movements by the uses of Anapesta.
