The envoi is the name for the short stanza at the close of a poem.  The envoi is not a poem, but rather a piece or ending section of a poem.

It addresses an imagined or actual person, or  it may also be used to comment on the earlier content of the poem. It also repeats rhyme words or sounds used in the main body of the poem.
