What is music poetry?

Music poetry is created when a poet associates a poem with any musical piece, ranging from jazz (Langston Hughes reading with Charles Mingus) to classical (Saint Saens' "L'histoire du Soldat").

However, the only requirement for a music poem is that it deal with music in any way, according to poetry lexicographer John Drury.

Some music poems

--imitate a musical form

--respond to a musical piece

--can be performed with music

--narrate a musical event

--explore an instrument

--use works meant to be sung.
