A really fun prompt at dVerse Poets Pub today: to write ‘echo poetry’. An Echo Verse is a poem where the last word or syllable in a line is repeated or echoed underneath to form a rhyming liner. My attempt below is just a quick sprint, inspired by conversations between my parents (and of course the first line of a poem by T.E. Brown). But there are some far more wonderful examples linked up to the site, both funny and thoughtful, so I strongly urge you to check them out.
A garden is a lovesome thing, God wot!
Even in a heat wave, there’s bliss to be found.
Ferns, palm-shade, pool to cool us down…
Flowers burst forth in coloured refrain.
Oh, you’re such a philistine and bore!
