During Christmas there is all sorts of music. Christmas songs can be heard from a variety of sources and presumably there are at least hundreds of Christmas songs. The music of Christmas might make an interesting poetry topic idea. For example, a poet could:
- Write a Christmas song themselves (the song being a poem)
- Think of elements that go into typical Christmas songs and use those elements in poetry
- Think about things that make music in a way, like bells or chimes or birds, during Christmas time, and use those elements in a poem
- Write about the ideas of traditional and contemporary
P.S. Recently, M. Sakran had two poems published in the Fall 2015 issue of Blood and Thunder: Musings on the Art of Medicine.
