The Pining of Echo

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Alisa Simonoff

The nymph Echo fell in love with Narcissus, the most beautiful of lads. Her spurned her, yet after he fell into the water that would be his death she mourned him in quiet hollows and shadowed caves. Found and drink and pleasures she gave up, until she too died. Now, in those empty places where she pined away for Narcissus only the sound of her voice remains.
