Double Dactyl

Hickory dickory, Beauteous Rosamond, Sleeping so silently One hundred years… Come your awakening, Phantasmagorical, When a Prince Charming can Conquer your fears. ~ Harley White

Nice association... The 'double dactyl' (with an 'a') has a fixed structure. There must be two stanzas, each comprising three lines of dactylic dimeter... etc. Look it up and you'll see.
