(12) Unusual Echoes

1) Diminishing Verse (see p.48)
Herbert's poem, 'Paradise' is an example of Diminishing Verse. See this link about 'Counted Verse', which can, it seems, include Diminishing Verse poems like 'Paradise'. See also this link - diminishing verse about diminishing returns by Janice D. Soderling.

2) Echo verse

3) Echo of twins

4) Duck's quack

5) Sound definition

6) Rhyme in Ancient Poetry

7) Books as 'divine ecchoes' - as in Swift 1612. (Source: Then Play On: Listening to the Shakespearean Soundscape' (July 1999) Wes Folkerth.

8) The sound of waves in a seashell (BBC).
Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Charles Henry Webb both wrote about the sea sounds inside a shell. The New York Times (click link then open pdf) ran an evocative feature on sea sounds.

9) Eccho in verse by Lady Mary Wroth: The Countess of Montgomery's Urania, and its appended Sonnet Cycle, Pamphilia to Amphilanthus (1621) [A Moving Rhetoricke, Christina Luckyj p.130]
