Lyric poems are poems found in musical tones. In lyric poetry, the mood is very emotional. The writer would write words that correspond to the feelings he expressed. Some examples of lyric poetry can be found in Italian and English sonnets.

Italian Sonnet by James DeFord

Turn back the heart you've turned away
Give back your kissing breath
Leave not my love as you have left
The broken hearts of yesterday
But wait, be still, don't lose this way
Affection now, for what you guess
May be something more, could be less
Accept my love, live for today.
