Kristin Garth : part five

How important is music to your poetry? 

Rhythm and rhyme are such a part of songs.  I write sonnets, mostly, which one derivation of that word is song.  It’s like a little song.  They have a great rhythm to them and a rhyme scheme that I enjoy the way I enjoy a good song.  It’s one of the reasons I have come to enjoy performing them so much.  When they work well, they have a lot of musicality.  I think they sound great out loud.

I also love music.  I love to listen to instrumental music, electronica, witch house when I write.  I write a lot of poetry with dark themes, and music can really put me there, bring me into the drama, the mood.
