From Laurie NilesI love it! As a musician, I'd call it a poem in 6/8, but can any one guess the poetry meter here?

From Laurie NilesOr is it perhaps dactylic octameter?

From Dave BazellThis is a double dactyl. A dactyl has three syllables with the stress on the first syllable. The double means there are two dactyls per line (most of the time.) There are other details of the form but google will do a better job than I will of explaining it.
