Hello all: I’m a composition student at Rowan University in NJ, and I wondered if any of you had suggestions for poetry or texts to set to music. Most of what I write is vocal music, and I’m a big fan of simply worded but elegant poetry (Sara Teasdale and Christina Rosetti are two of my current favorites). I’ve been searching for texts, both sacred and poetic, but I can’t seem to find anything lately that starts the wheels turning. I never used to have this issue, so I’m not quite sure how to get past it. If you could suggest either specific poems/texts or some authors that I could look into, I would really appreciate it; I’m sure many of you have some favorites.
