E for Echo #NaPoWriMo2021

The Echo poem or Echo verse is an interesting form of poetry. We just have to follow a simple rule that the end syllable(s) of each of the lines have to be repeated in the same line. Sometimes a near rhyme works too.

I walk, I cover, recover
All of me that was lost, cost

that regrow the stems of my soul, whole,
talk to me with brisky breezes, appeases
in these creeky syllables of life,rife
And now I know your worth, earth.
