Lyric poems are normally short and try to convey a single thought or idea. Generally speaking, lyric poetry is short compared to an epic poem. Furthermore, it only consist of a single speaker who expresses his emotions and feelings. Usually, lyrical poetry is based upon a melody and is written in such a way so that the words could easily fit the melody.

Usually, they are designed to be sung or spoken alongside an instrument. In ancient Greek, lyrical poetry was sung alongside a harp like instrument and it had poems that were written for special occasions such as weddings or funerals. Nevertheless, lyrical poetry is very vast and it covers various different styles.
