The prompt at dVerse Poets Pub Meeting the Bar yesterday was to write Echo Verse. Most of the examples of the traditional form included the word “echo” before the echoing second line of each stanza, but an option without the word “echo” was offered and I like it better. So here’s my offering for the day.
Echoes of Grace
I desire to pen words that are right
But that won’t lead to my disgrace
I don’t want to write of You what is untrue
I long to feel Your loving embrace
Running, praying, ’til I get to You
Learning how to offer Your sweet grace
