对于想要锻炼他们的创造力和分析思维的人来说，写一首颂歌是一项有趣的任务。表格遵循任何人，儿童或成人都可以学习的规定格式。颂歌是一首抒情诗，用来赞美一个人，事件或物体。你可能听过或读过John Keats着名的“Grecian Urn上的颂歌”。 （有些学生错误地认为这首诗是写在实体瓮上的，当时这首诗是关于瓮的 – 这是对瓮的颂歌。）颂歌是古典希腊人曾经使用过的古典诗歌风格。和罗马人一起演唱他们的颂歌而不是写在纸上。今天的颂歌通常是不规则的韵律诗。它们被分成诗节（诗歌的“段落”），每个都有十行，有时遵循押韵模式，虽然诗歌不需要押韵被归类为颂歌。通常，颂歌有三到五节。有三种类型的颂歌：pindaric，horatian和不规则。 Pindaric odes有三个节，其中两个具有相同的结构。一个例子是托马斯·格雷的“诗歌的进步”。 Horatian颂歌有不止一节，所有节都遵循相同的押韵结构和仪表。一个例子是Allen Tate的“同盟者死亡之颂”。不规则的颂歌没有固定的模式或押韵。一个例子是Ram Mehta的“地震颂”。阅读一些颂歌的例子，以便在你自己编写之前了解它们的样子。颂歌的目的是为了美化或提升某些东西，所以你应该选择一个你兴奋的颂歌主题。想想你发现真正精彩的人，地点，事物或事件，并且你有很多积极的话要说（尽管写一篇关于你真正讨厌或讨厌的事情的颂歌也可能是一种有趣且具有挑战性的练习！ ）想想你的主题如何让你感觉并记下一些形容词。想想是什么让它变得特别或独特。考虑您与该主题的个人联系以及它如何影响您。记下您可以使用的一些描述性词语。你的主题有哪些特定的品质？
Writing an ode is a fun task for anyone who wants to exercise both their creativity and their analytical mind. The form follows a prescribed format that anyone, child or adult, can learn. An ode is a lyric poem that is written to praise a person, event, or object. You may have heard of or read the famous “Ode on a Grecian Urn” by John Keats. (Some students mistakenly believe that this poem was written on the physical urn, when it fact the poem is written about an urn — it is an ode to the urn.) The ode is a classical style of poetry, once used by the ancient Greeks and Romans, who sang their odes rather than writing them on paper. Today’s odes are usually rhyming poems with irregular meter. They are broken into stanzas (the “paragraphs” of poetry) with ten lines each, sometimes following a rhyming pattern, although rhyme is not required for a poem to be classified as an ode. Usually, odes have three to five stanzas. There are three types of odes: pindaric, horatian, and irregular. Pindaric odes have three stanzas, two of which have the same structure. An example is “The Progress of Poesy” by Thomas Gray. Horatian odes have more than one stanza, all of which follow the same rhyme structure and meter. An example is “Ode to the Confederate Dead” by Allen Tate. Irregular odes follow no set pattern or rhyme. An example is “Ode to an Earthquake” by Ram Mehta. Read a few examples of odes to get a feeling for what they are like before you write your own. The purpose of an ode is to glorify or exalt something, so you should choose a subject for your ode that you are excited about. Think of a person, place, thing, or event that you find truly wonderful and about which you have plenty of positive things to say (although it also might be a fun and challenging exercise to write an ode about something you truly dislike or hate!) Think about how your subject makes you feel and jot down some adjectives. Think about what makes it special or unique. Consider your personal connection to the subject and how it has impacted you. Make note of some descriptive words you can use. What are some specific qualities of your subject?
