Echo


Come to me in the silence of the night;
Come in the speaking silence of a dream;
Come with soft rounded cheeks and eyes as bright

    ...........so nicely written.....the echo of love still remains....even though death, has carried her beloved across the vast expanse of darkness... to paradise.... (Report) Reply

    A beautiful, yearning for love that has passed. I felt the emotion so deeply.Echo is an excellent title. The last verse is brilliant poetry.
    come back to me..... and the conclusion of breath to breath, pulse to pulse....
    A Lover's lost love of longing, even pleading, for the echo of their love shared so
    deeply.
    The best Love Poem I have read.

    I've always found a woman's love poem more powerful and poignant than that of a man; there's an honesty perhaps less restricted my the ego. (Report) Reply

    I love this beautiful hauntingly sad poem. Love returns in dreams as an echo. Love endures. (Report) Reply

    Enjoyable and lovely dreams nobody can deny to have and such a state of joy Rossetti has expressed in the poem so well that it gives vicarious pleasure indeed! (Report) Reply

    Awesome poetic talent. Really enjoyed every word in it. But I wish to add:
    Why always for the dreams we wish?
    Why don't in life we live like a fish?
    A great variety are in life's dish,
    Why not enjoy them with a swish?
    You have great depth. (Report) Reply

    Kindly deliver this poem to Narcissus.
    What kind of flower may will bloom in this love this time.

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
