Hi!

I wonder what would you play to back up reciting poems? I mean, what would you play as a base for poems?
Im sorry, cause my English isnt very good, but I hope you understand what I mean.

Thanks

Hi Astra: Your English is perfectly fine. And welcome...all the way from Slovenia!

This is just me, so don't believe everyone thinks this way.

I, personally, do not like to equate words with music. I love poetry, and I believe the beauty of the words themselves sing their own kind of music. To put music to the words would only distract from that beauty.

And the music...no words are appropriate because, again, the music speaks its own kind of beauty that words can not express.

Sorry if my answer wasn't what you were looking for.

Regards.
Kathleen
