Okay I won't be asking you to write me a full on ode with the three stanzas but this is what I want from you. The ode is a dedication or you chirping about something, and the subject of your poem is going to be an inanimate object, like a pillow or glasses. Figurative stuff will not work, so you can't talk about sleep or love because those aren't inanimate objects. The goal in this poem is to not only tell me why you love this object, but you have to in some way personify the object a.k.a. give it some human quality. (But don't make it completely human.) An example could be how the tulips in your yard are gazing back at you. Your lines have to be brief, no long winded lines in this poem. If your poem feels irregular or unusual, that's fine. This is how it's supposed to feel.
