      Yes indeed

       

      I suppose Longfellow might have just arrived at the metre independently – it’s hardly difficult!

      The metre is familiar to us because Longfellow used it in the "Song of Hiawatha."


      By the shores of Geetchee Gumi

      By the shining Big-Sea-Water

      Stood the wigwam of Nokomis

      Daughter of the Moon, Nokomis. . .
