General Poetry

Some songs begin life as just words which may…or may not…ever become songs. Following recent discussion about whether or not Bob Dylan should have received a Nobel Literature prize for song lyrics (?), i humbly submit that song lyrics can be poetry and don’t always need music to enhance them. Having said that, i realise that some song words don’t aspire to the category of poetic literature and never intended to. This page will be used to share “songs in progress” or just to air words that might remain as poetry unless or until i manage to set them to music. Either way, i believe they have equal validity and deserve equal scrutiny. What do you think?
