#NaPoWriMo day 20

After yesterday’s late night, barely through the gate, entry; forgotten tags;  desperate bid to stay on track for one a day … Here comes an early one:

Echo maker
shoe sounder
creaking footsteps

foot’s cradle
laminated rows
stage tread

house liner
dust protector
splintered pathway

secret keeper
heart hider
tell-tale planks

What am I?
