Thread Name: Common poems set to music
Subject: RE: Common poems set to music
i was playing daddy won't you take me back to muellenberg county, by john prine, and i realized it was in an anapestic tetramater meter. so as a joke i occasionally sing byron's poem, the assyrian, to the same tune.
i am a w h auden afficianado so i often try settings for his poems. time will say nothing and in memory of w b yeats deserve great tunes--if i find one i'll let ya all know
