An Echo Verse is when the last word or syllable in a line is repeated or echoed underneath to form a rhyming line, normally ending as the last line being the title to the poem.
What is this that falls from the sky?
Echo - I
Do you live above the thunder?

You don’t fall quietly from the cloud
Echo - Loud
You hit the ground with a spatter

You journey from the sky to the drain
