A New Day Comes and Goes
The stars of night all gone, a new day breaks,
the sky rather cloudy as the wind rose
a field of green wet grass sparkles and glows,
then rain coming from the south overtakes.
Ice cold striking moisture with hail outbreaks.
Enjoy the chills today it rarely snows,
take care driving, there is ice on the road.
It’s fine this evening, looking at the sky,
you can reflect on the stars floating by.

This has been a very hard poem to write, I don’t guarantee it is right, so feel free to advise me, as it is the first one of this form, I have written.
What is a iambic pentameter? – a line of verse with five metrical feet, each consisting of one short (or unstressed) syllable followed by one long (or stressed) syllable, for example Two households, both alike in dignity.
