#31PoeticFormsIn31Days #12HoratianOde

Giraffe so tall
I admire ALL your height
That you do not fall
Is our complete delight
With your neck so long
And your legs so thin
Your shape is a mystery
But it can't be wrong
Your design is the thing
That makes you a great beauty

A Horatian Ode is all about celebrating someone or something.  It should have rhythm and rhyme in the structure:

Abab cdecde
