What is a Lyric poem?

A lyric poem expresses personal or emotional feelings and is traditionally set in the present tense. Lyric Poetry consists of a poem, such as a sonnet or an ode that expresses the thoughts and feelings of the poet. The term lyric is now commonly referred to as the words to a song.

Lyric poetry does not tell a story which portrays characters and actions. The lyric poet addresses the reader directly, portraying his or her own feeling, state of mind, and perceptions. It is not always, set to music or a beat. So basically, it is a short poem of song-like quality.
