IN-FORM POET WEDNESDAY – ODE

Simply put, an “Ode” is a poem commending a person, place, or thing.  Choose the object of your admiration, and draw us in.  

MARIE ELENA’S ATTEMPT

ODE TO A MENTOR

The yellow brick road loosely resembles
Sweet corn,
Acres of which thrive
Wholly due to his vigilant presence. 
 
Remarkable sentinel
Fearless defender
Tireless escort
