Narcissus And Echo
Thou scheme a tale, rightly told through Ovid, Entreat thee twain hearts thus thee speak thereof, Grant thee their role, dark, yea set thee forward, Born per a nymph, reverse, a nymph in love. Narcissus, hunter, heavenly vision, Echo, spent in love and a shadow be, She paces him in hopeful liaison, He senses her presence but cannot see. He beckons, his words albeit rebound, Her confession irks him, she is ignored, She kills herself, transmutes as a faint sound, Nemesis made Narcissus self-adored. He loved his image, were not meant two halve, Killed himself for the one he could naught have.
*A glen echoes a rippling stream whose banks beget flowering golden Narssisci. 2020 February 21 Your Favorite Legend Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Chantelle Anne Cooke Howmanysyllables; 14 lines x 10 syllables per = 140 syllables
