Echoes Linger On

Silent echoes linger on When the poet's ink no longer flows Sometimes the muse is gone But will return to meet the dawn Do poets ever truly leave? Their poems are left behind to inspire those Who may find words to weave And write of the dew upon the rose Poets muses take them far And let them play among the stars Poets are really never gone Though silent echoes may linger on 11-28-2020 Where Do We Poets Go?

"Poems are left behind to inspire" You are exactly right. (Our) Words will always find a way to touch a heart, even when we are no longer here. This is beautiful and tender, all at the same time. ~ Brandy
