Multiple Meanings
lament

She lamented the loss.
to express grief or regret

Although lament typically refers to a feeling or simple vocal expression, it can refer to a vocal expression as complex as a sad song or poem. It can even refer to sad, but non-vocal music — as when Tennessee Williams references background music in A Streetcar Named Desire.
