    This is crucial to know for your question. When talking about a poetic meter, the most basic unit is known as a metrical 'foot.' An iamb is such a foot having two syllables: the first unstressed, or 'weak,' and the second stressed.

    This just so happens to be your answer by the way. This will get somewhat more complicated as you go on learning about this. You will learn about pentameters and such, but all that basically is telling you is how many syllables each foot
