The Poeming Pigeon is a semi-annual journal of poetry, with each book having a unique theme. Our first three issues included poetry on the topic of birds, food and cannabis, and for this issue, we explore poems about music.

675 poets from across the globe answered the call to share their musically inspired poetry. We chose 88 poems--one for each key on a piano. Upon these pages you'll discover poems inspired by genres ranging from classical to country, from jazz to rock-n-roll, and everything in between. Join us on a musical journey of discovery and nostalgia. And let the poetry tug on your heartstrings, like a virtuoso glides the bow across the strings of a violin.
