Land of Never-ending Summers
I know this may sound stupid, but I need some enlightenment.
What is an ode?
In the dictionary, it means:
1. A lyric poem of some length, usually of a serious or meditative nature and having an elevated style and formal stanzaic structure.
2a. A choric song of classical Greece, often accompanied by a dance and performed at a public festival or as part of a drama.
2b. A classical Greek poem modeled on the choric ode and usually having a three-part structure consisting of a strophe, an antistrophe, and an epode.
Is there a simpler, more comprehensive way of explaining it?
