Echo and Narcissus


Fair Echo lived by the water

And from afar she did see

The handsome man never falter

From his path, chasing deer easily.


Echo had been cursed long ago

Her voice resigned to a copy;

Taken from her by the Goddess Juno

She suffered a lonely journey.


Narcissus did not return her love,

He was as a cold as a waxing moon.

He pined for himself as the stars above

Condemned Echo to the silence of doom.
