The song of Hiawatha and Kalevala are both written in runometer (I don't
know what it's called in english). It consists of two groups with four
trochees in each, and a trochee consists of a long syllable followed by a
short one. In addition to this the groups should alliterate and the second
group should repeat the content of the first one one way or the other.
As far as I can tell, you're not using this metre.
