I’m writing an epic collection of poetry

Specifically, I will be writing a collection of poetry using the timed horological epic form which you can read about HERE and HERE.

In short: there will be one line of verse for every second in a twelve-hour period for the whole collection, with the poems’ ending on those seconds where the hands of a clock would be seen to cross, and each poem based on a different fairy tale (starting with the Brothers Grimm as translated by Ralph Mannheim), and every line for this particular project will be five syllables long (to match the phrase "once upon a time").

The final line of the final poem in this volume will end on that second wherein the minute-hand is seen to cross the hour hand for the first time in the twelve-hour period of One Second After Midnight to 12 o’Clock Midnight.
