Lyric, lyric, lyric...
What we think when we hear the word lyric? Originally – from the Greek word, lyra, meaning lyre, lyric poetry, refers to a short song accompanied by a musical instrument, almost always the lyre. And so is lyric, and so are poems, in the broadest sense, nothing more than “Enscripturated singing” with all its forms of expression.
