Music vs. Poetry

Two things I love: music and poetry. But then again, you probably could have guessed that. However, I find it's hard to read poetry while listening to music. Doing both fails to give either task the attention it deserves. It's like trying to read two poems at once. Would Mozart be conducive to a poetic mood? I have never been one to listen to classical music though perhaps now is as good of a time as any.

Mozart - Concerto 23. It's so lovely. Just take the time to really soak it in.

Debussy - Claire De Lune, Reverie. He has some other good ones too.

Most of Yann Tiersen's stuff (check out the Amelie soundtrack).

These are all pretty slow, but I really like to relax to them, or do homework to them.
