Double Dactyl

Hickory dickory,
Beauteous Rosamond,
Sleeping so silently
One hundred years…

Come your awakening,
When a Prince Charming can
Conquer your fears.

Agreed. I just mean that ductyl looks like waltz musically.

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.

I see those tales as sort of mythological...
