I always choose the best answer.How do I improve this sentence so it sounds more poetic?
Yes. Your sentence is very much in conflict with itself because the phrasing, the structure, of it is very modern, and yet the word 'tidings' is so old that it is nearly obsolete nowadays. (And 'tidings', is still plural so the verb 'is' must be made plural; but let's not go that route....) "What news, [Yorick]?" (or any other older-style name that you might want here.)
Don't use both "any" and "anywhere"; it is redundant and confusing. "Tidings" is plural, so use "ARE", not "is".
