Allusion to Music & Continuing the Music

Read Wade in the Water by Tracy K. Smith, the current U.S. Poet Laureate. She references a traditional song, but she also creates some music of her own in the poem by using rhyme and rhythm.  Can you reference a popular or traditional song that means something to you and create some new musicality out of it?
