Thread Name: On Your 'To-Do' List
Subject: RE: On Your 'To-Do' List
Setting Kipling's "The Four Angels" to music. Making a new tune for Yeats' "Song of Wandering Aengus."

I'm trying to spend less time learning songs and more time crafting them -- which has never come easily for me. I can write lyrics, and I can cobble together tunes, but can't seem to do both. I figure that getting more individual practice with each activity has got to make it easier, in the end, to fuse the two skills.
