Abstract

Poetry is a series of diverse complex parts of the artistic whole. Putting poetry together after analysis is like coordinating a musical performance; both actual poetry and actual musical composition converge into an artistic experience that grows deeper and deeper we understand it. Seriosa songs, the point is the equality of music and text, a synthesis of art forms from two different media. Those who fail to understand the meaning of poetry will be correlated with failure to understand the real meaning of music. Singers who have not thoroughly studied poetry cannot sing or play seriosa compositions with focus, imagination and vitality. The need to study poetry in preparation for seriosa performances is not an option, but rather becomes a major part of the basic work for seriosa singers and pianists. There is a phenomenon that occurs, especially in music education in Indonesia, they study seriosa songs by prioritizing notation without ever having the opportunity to learn language as art, either in poetry or in the form of prose. We separate poetry discussions into two basic components: poetry content and poetic forms. In addition to general concerns about word usage, we will also examine how words are chosen for language features that suggest the musical arrangement of the verse: words that exploit sound and color.
