Write a poem on the theme of “echo”.  Any length.

Poetry Poetry – Echo

I listen to the laughter
it echoes in my mind
a memory long gone by
that lives in my heart

translated to cheers
for joy and happiness
such a sweet sound
enriching my body

ECHO

Echo is to the ear what recollection is to the mind; each brings back the past, restores lost enjoyment, augments our satisfaction, and enriches our mental store. The man of mind has memory’s echo ever at command; his tongue can, after a lapse of time, recover again sweet sounds; his declamation can revive eloquence of another age; the books which he has perused with attention, live fresh in his remembrance, and, like echo, speak to him invisibly, and present themselves again to his view.
