What is an “ode”?


1. A lyric poem in the form of an address to a particular subject, often elevated in style or manner and written in varied or irregular meter.
This is what my eldest gave me for mother’s day.
An ode.
She’s eleven.
Ode to My Mother
The roots that hold me down
The tree that shelters
The gardener who cares
The mower who trims
The petals that make the flower pretty
The stem that holds it up
You are all these things and more
Amazing sister
Great wife
Beautiful daughter
But most of all,
You are
Pretty great, huh?  😉
