I'm sure many of you caught this, but there was an error in my schema. The 
reason for having two parameter entities for metric feet was to capture the 
fact that the last foot in a line may have an extra syllable:

<!ENTITY % normal.foot "(%iamb; | %anapest; )">
<!ENTITY % last.foot "(%iamb; | %anapest; | %tertius.paeon; )">

The corrected DTD appears after my signature.


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!ENTITY % normal.foot "(%iamb; | %anapest; )">
<!ENTITY % last.foot "(%iamb; | %anapest; | %tertius.paeon; )">

<!ENTITY % iamb "( da, dum )">
<!ENTITY % anapest "( da, da, dum )">
<!ENTITY % tertius.paeon "( da, da, dum, da )">

<!ELEMENT limerick (long, long, short, short, long)>
<!ELEMENT long ( %normal.foot;, %normal.foot;, %last.foot; )>
<!ELEMENT short ( %normal.foot;, %last.foot; )>
