Not all popular music is one particular style or have the same rhythm. Just as much as their mood varies, their various lyrical content compliments the instrumental background creating different ambience for each song. For instance, one of the Fleet Foxes’ hit songs White Winter Hymnal uniquely combine the reminiscence sound of ’70s folk rock and non-traditional hymnal lyrics creating a mystical, soothing excitement. Unexpected forms of literature can be incorporated into popular music to enhance the overall balance of a song.
The poem A Forest Hymn talk of the origin of all the nature that surrounds humanity and the activities of these naturally found objects. It gives an indication that the source of all the nature that we see is God and He is the one who controls their actions in all aspects and as to that, the poet implores the entire humanity to humble itself before the creator and controller of nature and worship him, not necessarily in houses or in crowds as both of these are weak and cannot stand before the might of the creator, but in natural settings.

Buffalo men, they called them, and talked slowly to the prisoners scooping mush and tapping away at their chains. Nobody from a box in Alfred, Georgia, cared about the illness the Cherokee warned them about, so they stayed, all forty-six, resting, planning their next move. Paul D had no idea of what to do and knew less than anybody, it seemed. He heard his co-convicts talk knowledgeably of rivers and states, towns and territories. Heard Cherokee men describe the beginning of the world and its end. Listened to tales of other Buffalo men they knew — three of whom were in the healthy camp a few miles away. Hi Man wanted to join them; others wanted to join him. Some wanted to leave; some to stay on. Weeks later Paul D was the only Buffalo
This poem, Praise Song for the Day by Elizabeth Alexander, is one of the most memorable poems that have been recited within the last 20 years. Immediately after President Obama was sworn into office, Elizabeth Alexander recited her poem to the masses that had gathered on that cold winter day in January. The piece is full of symbolism, with the tone being hopeful, inspiring and thankful. The poem begins with a description of daily life which is filled with the daily grind of hard working individuals, often doing the work that drives this great nation of ours…small businesses, blue-collar laborers, honorable professions such as teaching.
There are plenty works of poetry that have been published, but none that match the intellect and beautiful writing aura like those of Phillis Wheatley’s. Phillis Wheatley was America’s first black female poet who learned to read and write at an age where blacks were either unable to learn or restricted from these opportunities. Most of Phillis Wheatley’s poetry consists of religion, death and the hardships and burdens blacks endured throughout slavery. With the will to overcome slavery, she went on to express her thoughts, views, and ideas through poetry. Her writing talents and deep intellect towards her works separate her from other writers and place her in a category of her
Love is the feeling of deep romantic or sexual attachment to someone. The song ¨Take me to Church¨ by Hozier is about homosexuality and in a way celebrating love and humanity. The song explains how a man has fallen in love with his lover, a man. Explaining that his love is like the church and that he will worship his lover blindlessly. In addition, this love in the eye of others is a sickness both the lovers were born with. In contrast, he love this so called sickness, which is ironic. He is in love with his lover and believe it is just a human feeling that no church or institution could ever stop. The character in the song believe that with these feeling and being with his lover, it´s the only feeling that grants him humanity and freedom. Building the lovers ethos around this idea of religious magnitude. The author uses irony, metaphor and repetition to set forth the deeper meaning of homosexuality and appreciation towards love.
Caedmon’s Hymn is a beautifully crafted poem that Caedmon received through a dream. This hymn describes, in my opinion how lucky man is to have such and awesome and gracious creator. It describes God in many different ways such as Lord Almighty or Guardian of Mankind. The second line of the poem calls God’s creation “the might of his architect” which refers to how perfect and suitable God made the world, which showed an obvious trait of love and care for His creation. The poem says in the fourth line how amazing God was and claims that he “established the beginning of wonders”. In the fifth line he describes God’s creation as a “roof for the children of men” most likely referring to the fact that we are sinners not worthy of love, but God
This is showing that even though they have had some very disgraceful actions happen that their culture is not as corrupted as the white men. This shows that the natives actually have morals, and that that even when the white men had betrayed them and had ruined an important religious ceremony that they can forgive them.
