Lyrical Poems Definition Lyrical poems consist of a poem, Such as a sonnet or an ode,that expresses the thoughts and feeling
of the poet. The term lyric is now
commonly reffered to as the words to
a song. Lyrical poems do not portray
characters and actions. They address
the reader directly, portraying his
or her own feelings, state of mind,
and preceptions. types-of-poetry.org.UK/31-lyric-poetry.htm Famous Examples The Lockless Door
By:Robert Frost It went many years,
But at last came a knock,
and I thought of the door
with no lock to lock.

I blew out the light
I tip-toed to the floor
and raised both hands
In prayer to the door.

But the knock came again,
my window was wide;
I climbed on the sill
and descended outside.

Back over the sill
I made a "Come in"
To whatever the knock
at the door may have been

So at a knock
I emptied my cage
To hide in the wood
and alter with age www.famouspoetsandpoems.com 1. 2. 3. 4. A Great Example Why Is It Important? History My Pretty Rose Tree
By:William Blake A Flower was offered to me,
Such a flower as May never bore,
But I said "I've a pretty rose tree,"
And I passed the sweet flower over.

Then I went to my pretty rose tree,
To tender her by day and by night;
But my rose frowned away with jealousy,
And her thorns were my only delight. www.types-of-poetry.org.ok Fire And Ice
By:Robert Frost Some say the world will end in fire,
some say in ice,
from what I've tasted of desire,
I hold those who favor fire
but I have perish twice,
I think I know enough to hate
to say thay for destruction
is also great
and would suffice. Dying
By:Emily Dickinson I heard a fly buzz when I died;
The stillness round me form
Was like the stillness in the air
Between the heaves of storm.

The eyes beside had rung them dry,
And breaths were gathering sure
For the last onset, when the king
Be witnessed in his power.

I willed my Keepsakes, signed away
What portion of me I
could make assignable,-and then There interposed a fly,

With blue, uncertain, stumbling buzz,
Between the light and me;
And then the windows failed, and then
I could not see to see. http://www.types-of-poetry.org.uk/dying.htm A Fairy Song
By:Shakespeare Over hill, over dale,
Thorough bush, thorough brier,
over park, over pale, thorough flood, thorough fire!
I do wonder everywhere, swifter than the moon's sphere;
And I serve the Fairy Queen,
To dew her orbs upon the green;
The cowslips tall her pensioners be;
In their gold coats spots you see;
Those be rubies, fairy favours;
In those freckles live their savours;
I must go seek some dewdrops here,
And hang a pearl in every cowslip's ear.

By: Shakespeare 5. Come unto these yellow sands,
And then take hands:
Court'sied when you have, and kiss'd,--
The wild waves whist--
Foot it featly here and there;
And, sweet sprites, the burthen bear.
Hark, hark!
Bow, wow,
The watch-dogs bark:
Bow, wow.
Hark, hark! I hear
The strain of strutting chanticleer
