Horatian Ode

The Horatian ode was named after the Roman poet, Horace. It was usually more calm and less formal than the Pindaric Ode, and was more for personal enjoyment than a stage performance.

Example

Example: Here is an excerpt from Ode to the Confederate Dead by Allen Tate. “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.” Poem by: Allen Tate.
