LAY


LAY A short lyric or narrative storytelling poem, especially one intended to be sung, usually by travel-ing minstrels. These minstrels thus kept alive ancient stories dealing with mythology, history, or legendary adventures. In Norse mythology many of the poems in the poetic edda are lays, such as the Lay of Thrym, or thrymskvitha.
