So, we have reached the end dear friend
Poems have been written and read
Some I’ve enjoyed, some not
But glad I’ve finished now
So, here’s the big goodbye
Thanks to everyone who took the time to read my Camp NaNoWriMo contributions.
Unlike many of the poetic forms we examine on this blog, echo verse has a pretty simple rule: Repeat the end syllable(s) of each line. No other rules.
There are two ways to do this: Repeat the ending syllable(s) at the end of the same line (as in my example below); or repeat the ending syllable(s) on its own line directly beneath each line. I’ll include a variant example below.
