Dear Marcin, I read the stresses syllables as follows:

With the OTHer masquerADES

That TIME reSUMES,

OneTHINKS of all the HANDS

That are RAISing dingy SHADES

In a THOUSand FURNished ROOMS.

Could you please help me wit the metrical feet in the second stanza of TSE's Preludes?

I have doubts about the third line here:

                                           (...)

With the other masquerades

That time resumes,

One thinks of all the hands

That are raising dingy shades

In a thousand furnished rooms.

are there: one spondee and two dactyls?

Thank you.
