We're going to look at some odes this week in eighth grade. To me this seems a great way to celebrate Thanksgiving, to read some of Pablo Neruda's joyous praise of ordinary objects. I wish I could read them in Spanish, but I enjoy them very much in English.
You can read some of Neruda's odes here and here and here.
I think I'll try to write an ode this week. There are so many things to praise.
