A song, poem, or verse
Many books include initial epigraphs to book components such as parts or chapters, as well as sidebars (<boxed-text>) that may contain nothing but a topical, humorous, or elegiac poem.
Implementor’s Note: No attempt has been made to retain the look or visual form of the original poetry.
