You are an Ode (v1)

Oh for a summer's dignity
but oh, alas, 'tis not for me
the times have waned
and with them I
and but dreams remain
of times gone by

Try the test again?

The ode is written for an occasion or on a particular subject; it is somewhat lyrical and can be put to music, but often is merely lilting, hinting at a rhythm. It has some form of rhyme scheme and meter, nothing strict, nothing overly complicated.

It is typically a dignified or serious piece, though in recent times this has been twisted sarcastically -- still meditative or noble in phrase but not in subject.
