Wordsworth's Poetical Works

What does a syllable mean and how do you discover one such in a poem?

Almost in every poem that I have read, people keep saying me that it has some kind of syllable but they never convinced me in explaining it. Please help...

A syllable is a unit of organization for a sequence of speech sounds. For example, the word water is composed of two syllables: wa and ter. Poems that have words in them will have syllables.
