What better way to write a line of verse
Than following the methods of the Bard
For countless times these lines I did rehearse
To verify the rhythm is not marred

To hear me tell myself di dum di dum
Did seem to some as proof that I’m not sound
So quietly I mouthed it in a hum
To keep my meter counting volume down

Be gentle to me reader of my words
Be kind as I am new to this old art
And thus I end my first iambic verse
Apologies to Will the Avon Bard

This made me smile-- I enjoyed it very much. The rhythm is quite lovely, too. I love "Will the Avon Bard"!
