As Echo, a nymph divine, you pined yourself away

Until you were but an empty voice crying in the wind,

A subtle song of past passions lost within your soul

Seeking once more those embers of emotions from whence

Echo and Narcissus could gladly meet once again.


The sadness of your voice belies a gentle yearning,

A subtle smoldering within the depths of your soul,

Embers of lost desires, coals of feelings burning deep

Inflaming a new slender flame of quiet notions,

Subtle emotions lost within your gentle spirit.


A sad smile embraces your lips belying those cravings,

A subtle smile wet with impromptu passion growing

Revealing hints of spent dreams of past fires, from whence

Like a phoenix rising from its intrinsic burning

Love smiles as the smile of our lips delicately meet.
