  "Metrical Feet" by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

    Troche trips from long to short.
    From long to long in solemn sort
    Slow Spondee stalks; strong foot! yet ill able
    Ever to come up with Dactyl trisyllable.
    Iambics march from short to long;--
    With a leap and a bound the swift anapests throng.

I think the poem you're looking for is called "Metrical Feet."  It's not
in my Everyman Coleridge nor in Perkins's anthology, but presumably is
in the OSA Coleridge or some other collected edition.

Jim Helsinger asks for Coleridge's little poem on prosody. I have it on
one of my advice pages: the URL is
http://www.arches.uga.edu/~fteague/meters.html

Enjoy!
