This delightful verse form was introduced to the world by Esquire magazine and to us by Mrs. Deborah Rogers in a poem published in Orcrist #2. That effort inspired a flurry of double dactyl composing on the part of members of the U. W. Tolkien Society, and such of our verses as seemed both most meritorious and most free from in-jokes are here foisted on our unwary audience. Caveat lector: we have not always kowtowed to the strict rules stipulated above; and we have sometimes indulged our deep affection for puns.
