Abstract

Up to the actual point of writing this preface, I have never given much deep thought as to the difference between writing song lyrics and poetry. I have actually been asked about this difference several times and, as I look back, I think it somewhat curious that I have always answered very matter-of-factly that writing songs is easier than writing poetry. As I now scrutinize my answer, I find that I still agree with it. Song writing (for me anyway) is easier, and I think this difference has to do with the contrasting functions of these art forms.
