words that consider music and soup

Poetry need not be long
Nor over produced,
Though neither makes it bad.
Thick and saucy
With many flavors
Fills you up and
Takes time to digest.
Yet, a thin,
Light broth,
With just a few,
Selected notes,
And a little salt,
Like a simple melody
With a harmonized verse and
A culminating cadence,
Is sometimes perfectly satisfying.
