Chantelle, all these questions should be posted in the Homework section of this site.

The answer to the first part of your question can be found at the website I listed.

What makes poetry lyrical? The rhythm and to a lesser extent the rhyme scheme.

Read poems by Lewis Carrol, Robert Burns, and A. C. Swinburne. They have a definite rhythm. Most modern poetry does not have this "lyrical" quality.
