More about Ode

There's more versions of Odes. There's Horatian Odes which is an less formal, less ceremonious. An example is Ode to Confederate Dead.

Row after row with strict impunity The headstones yield their names to the element, The wind whirrs without recollection; In the riven troughs the splayed leaves Pile up, of nature the casual sacrament To the seasonal eternity of death; Then driven by the fierce scrutiny Of heaven to their election in the vast breath, They sough the rumour of mortality.
