Alfred, Lord Tennyson's poem The Charge of the Light Brigade is a good example of a poem written in dactylic meter, but it uses trochees as well.
Half a league, half a league, Half a league onward, All in the valley of Death Rode the six hundred. "Foreward, the Light Brigade! Charge for the guns!" he said. Into the valley of Death Rode the six hundred
The mono-syllabic word Death is atypical of the metrical pattern and it is in order to draw attention to death.
