The meter seems to be one iambic foot (unstressed, stressed) followed by a Anapest trimester (unstressed, unstressed, stressed * 3) . I think, correct me if I’m wrong. I’m not Religious so I’m not particularly moved by the piety of the poem, but I admire someone who can write with that complex a meter.

I really like Ann Taylor poetry. Poetry from a mother to a little child. This is so beautiful.
