Are song lyrics poetry in motion?

Annie - 2008-06-20

Good afternoon De Waal

Read a very interesting article by Bernard Odendaal on the LitNet Forum where he discusses ther merits of poetry versus song lyrics.

Just so happens that I acquired a new CD over the weekend, Mosaic by a group called Watershed. There are only 2 cuts on the CD that really appeal to me. However, the lyrics are also included and this intrigued me no end. While the music is so-so, the lyrics are amazing. These I could relate to and enjoyed immensely.

What would be your opinion on the matter?
