Post Series: The Christmas Series: Poetry topic idea: Music

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.
