    It's trochaic pentameter, you ignoramus. Go take Intro to Lit again.

    If you let "girl" be two syllables, gir-uhl, then you get a nice iambic line with a feminine ending, which I think is appropriate to the situation.

    Just because it has 10 syllables doesn't make it iambic. And I am embarrassed for the English teacher that praised this without scanning it first.
