Poems classified as: Elegy

Sing out the pain of your heart woven in a soul-stirring Elegy. An elegy is a mournful, melancholic or plaintive poem, usually associated with a funeral song or a lament for the dead. Popular Elegies have often expressed three stages of loss. First is a lament, portraying grief and sorrow, then praise and admiration of the idealized dead, and finally consolation and solace. Soak your heart in memories as you float from one Elegy to the other.
