Learn the features of writing the ode genre. The classic ode has many signs, but only three main ones. These are the so-called odic “hovering”, odic delight and lyrical disorder. Even in the 20th century, when the genre almost sunk into oblivion, the poet Vladimir Mayakovsky wrote his work “Ode to the Revolution” based on this canonical triad.
Choose one to whom you dedicate an ode. The lack of content and the absence of the addressee in this poetic genre are unacceptable. Oda was originally created as a song of praise in honor of someone.
Use the tricks of the odic "floating". That is, the author’s view in the work is directed from top to bottom, which provides a wide overview. This can be seen in a passage from the ode of Lomonosov "Look to the mountains above, // Look into your wide fields, // Where is the Volga, the Dnieper, where Ob flows ...". The breadth of the gaze creates a solemn pathos of the ode.
Use more exclamations. This is the main means of creating the mood of one's delight.And precisely because of this particular ode, the works of his own composition in this genre are perfect for performing at home celebrations. They will create a feeling of celebration and at the same time be fresh, original and elegantly decorated to decorate the meeting with family and loved ones.
Do not dwell only on the description of the person to whom the ode is dedicated. Add to the work a little lyrical disorder, creative chaos, i.e. speaking about the subject of your ode, it is permissible to add a little reflection on high matters (certainly high, if you want to write a real ode, and not a ditty).

If you do not know how to apply to him (her) or have not yet decided on your status in relation to this person, then just a name is enough. The appeal is written on top, in the center of the sheet (postcard). At the end of the line put an exclamation mark.
Write your wishes to the person important to you. List some of the benefits of life, which, in your opinion, he (she) is not enough. Here you can insert a poem - your own composition or rewritten from a special book with congratulations.
Sign it. This is your name, your position or your status in relation to the person you congratulate. For example, "Tanya's friend", "Grandma Valya" or "the team of the confectionery shop No. 13". Before your name, you can put the words "whole" or "with respect." You can also put a number. The signature is usually placed in the lower right corner of the sheet of paper (postcard).
And the final touch - draw a funny picture, a flower or a heart.However, this item is not required if you do not have artistic abilities or consider drawing as superfluous.
Do not use too complicated and lofty expressions in congratulations. You either do not understand, or consider it a bore.
