THE LYRIC : -
is a song sung to the accompaniment of an instrument called Lyre .
It expresses one single emotion and is very brief. It is musical.
"A lyre is a stringed musical instrument, in which two arms jut out on one side of the instrument's body and at their tips support a yoke or crossbar to which gut strings are attached. The strings run to the body, across the belly or soundboard, over a bridge, and to a string holder at the lower end of the belly. In box lyres, the body and belly form a hollow wooden box; in bowl lyres, the body may be a tortoise shell or carved bowl, and the belly is of animal skin. "
