Poetic Forms: The Ode

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

The ode is a poem of meant to pay tribute to something or someone. It is meant to be flattering. There are three types of odes: the Horation; the Pindaric; and the Irregular. The Horation and Pindaric have very specific rules about their stanzas. I’m not going to get into them because I prefer the Irregular form but you should definitely look them up for curiosities sake. The Irregular Ode focuses on the element of praise. Write an ode in which you are praising or paying tribute to something that you think others would find odd.

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,

The Boy In The Heart Shades
