A Ballad

Thursday, December 25, 2008

A Ballad is a poem set to music. Fairy tales, myths, valour, tragedies and love are found in ballads. They are very simple, short and rhymed. It could be easily sung and it would be fun to teach kids these songs. They are often topical, humorous, and subversive.

Ballads are mostly in first person and conversational and consists of four lines.

Planning to post some beautiful and rare ballads sung in English...
