"Ode (NPM Lesson 6)"


  

          

Ode: dignified and elaborately structured lyric poem praising and glorifying an individual, commemorating an event, or describing nature intellectually rather than emotionally. Odes originally were songs performed to the accompaniment of a musical instrument.

Example:

An Ode to Jello

If I could eat Jell-O all day long,

Iíd be a happy guy.

Living on Jell-O can't be wrong,

And without it I would cry .

Iíd like to eat Jell-O throughout the day,

Over studying and straining my neck.

Iíd like to get Jell-O as my pay,

Instead of a boring paycheck.

Jell-O has many forms-I love them all,

Especially when topped with cool-whip.

It can be made right at home or bought at the mall,

And thereís a recipe for jalepeno Jell-O chip dip.

Jell-O makes me happy, maybe like a drug,

Plain Jell-O-made in my sink.

But some add hooch to it, and make it a slug

Ironic, donít you think?

I could eat Jell-O throughout the night,

I think Jell-O was in Momís womb.

A world with no Jell-O- thereís a fright.

That would bring imminent doom.

They say Vitamins are what you need,

If you donít want to die.

Since Jell-O has few, Iím in trouble indeed,

And I wanted to say good-bye.

As I lay here, on my death bed,

I am a happy dude.

"Why?" you ask-"are you screwed in the head?"

Nope--Jell-O is Hospital food.

-Vance Lassey


another example is the ode to dr. seuss (http://www.efn.org/~dmaring/seuss.html)

Aight Aight peep

--Ode to Chocolate Sugar--

Dark like the sun squatting behind the moon
Sweet like honey covered hallmarks for valentines day
Rich like Master P with out the gold teeth
Baby every word you speak is like heavens breeze

-I luv the way you cuss me out on the telephone-

I love the way you go through my dresser drawers
when a daweg aint home
searching for numbers
that aint there
cause I love you

I love you

You love_
love jones
love and basketball
whats love got to do with it
and waiting to exhale

and every breath you inhale turns me on

I wanna burn in your vision
till the water in my eyes evaporates
and I need visine
just to seem
focused while this dream
lacerates my every thought

You've got me open like quick marts in slow-motion
forever like the sands of time fused to glass
by my ocean of emotion crashing against the shores of eternity
with a farenheight akin to the cloud 9
thats 9 planets away cradaling my every concern

You are all that concerns me

and I love you

nigga
was thinkin that the if the length
of your foot...was really worth examining
they ought to give oscars for the way yours
makes a diagnol into a circle ...when we dive on the deep end

nigga u so black to me...u make the fist on my afro pick weep...and that's why i dig u
u be picking thru me like naps in small teeth combs

what u do fo' a livin'.?...i mean not that i'm gold diggin...but i wanna make sure we both stay well to do...so we can take days off...and figga out was my left side the goddess venus...or your dick the second moon...

my nigga ...my nigga...my nigga...

walk on over to the kitchen and lemme see your back side...wanna expose what your momma birthed into your veins...and your daddy said"daym if that nigga aint got a nice piece like mine"...

love the way u tell me straight up...to sit back and just flow...love the way u get complicated and break my backbone

my nigga...my nigga...my nigga....

my cookies and cream...

i was dreaming afro sheen thoughts against soiled sheets..so get yo' ass back in bed

and split me....


ode to my nigga...

kimabe ...okay...it's hot in NYC today so I'm feelin' a lil' freaky...leave me alone!..




"I was that ball of yarn, your pussy
want'd to get caught up in."

Giovanni


"dont leave
your thoughts behind
take them with you"....


LaDeeDef_99

satisfaction comes to those
who satisfy themselves...

are u in...or out?..
