Dear Ms. Tippet I am a long-time listener and a fan. I'm writing to you in response to your question: " Does music bring the poet’s words and reading style to life?"... I am a compose and I have created an interesting hybrid: a poem-song, it is a not music behind the poem, or a poem set to music, it's something else - a poem becomes a song becomes a poem. You have probably heard of Kay Ryan - The american poet laureate. It will be my great pleasure if you could find time to listen to a few short compositions based on Kay's readings.
