5/3 Meter

A poem consisting of an odd number of quatrains
I have no idea if this form has been otherwise named, if you know please advise.
Alternating lines of 5 and 3 syllables, where
the odd lines consist of  an IAMB and an ANAPEST
da-DUM da-DUM-da
and the even lines consist of a DACTYL 
Each stanza uses individual rhyme pattern -abab
where the b-rhymes are always feminine
The first stanza is repeated as the final stanza.
