  Strophe - LoveToKnow 1911
In modern poetry the strophe usually becomes identical with the stanza, and it is the arrangement and the recurrence of the rhymes which give it its character.
But it was the Greek ode-writers who introduced the practice of strophe-writing on a large scale, and the art was attributed to Stesichorus, although it is probable that earlier poets were acquainted with it.
The briefest and the most ancient strophe is the dactylic distich, which consists of two verses of the same class of rhythm, the second producing a melodic counterpart to the first.

Strophe (Greek, "to turn") is a term in versification which properly means a turn, as from one foot to another, or from one side of a chorus to the other.
In its precise choral significance a strophe was a definite section in the structure of an ode, when, as in Milton's famous phrase in the preface to Samson Agonistes, "strophe, antistrophe and epode were a kind of stanzas framed only for the music."
In a more general sense, the strophe is a pair of stanzas of alternating form on which the structure of a given poem is based.

 Humdrum Toolkit Command Reference -- strophe
Since the strophes split from a common spine, all strophic data necessarily begin by sharing the same data type.
However, when using the strophe command to select more than one strophe for output, it is essential that the input first be expanded to a through-composed version, via the thru command.
If the strophe command is invoked without any option, then all strophes are expanded in the output in numerical order beginning with strophe 1.

Strophe (Greek στροφή, turn, bend, twist, see also phrase) is a term in versification which properly means a turn, as from one foot to another, or from one side of a chorus to the other.
A strophe is also the part of the ode that the chorus chants as it moves from right to left across the stage.
The forms in modern English verse which reproduce most exactly the impression aimed at by the ancient odestrophe are the elaborate rhymed stanzas of such poems as Keats' Ode to a Nightingale or Matthew Arnold's The Scholar-Gipsy.

 Observations on Greek rhythm:
The terms "strophe", "antistrophe", and "epode", used in Svarlien's translations of Pindar, are fairly technical.
"Strophe" and "antistrophe" are ways of referring to the metrical or rhythmical pattern of a text which was originally sung.
As already stated, the significance of "strophe" and "antistrophe" was, as in a modern song, mainly a matter of musical accompaniment.

 Northvegr - Rydberg's Teutonic Mythology
With distinct consciousness of its symbolic signification, the greater mill is mentioned in a strophe by the skald Snæbjörn (Skáldskaparmál 33).
The strophe appears to have belonged to a poem describing a voyage.
The strophe says that the mill is in motion out on the edge of the earth, that nine giant-maids turn it (for the lesser Grotti-mill two were more than sufficient), that they had long ground with it, that it belongs to a skerry very dangerous to seafaring men, and that it produces a peculiar grist.

 Syriac Hymnody
A strophe is generally composed of equal verses, but it sometimes happens that the first of the last verse is in a different measure from the other verses of the strophe.
There may be two or more successive strophes beginning with the same letter, each letter regularly marking the same number of strophes throughout the poem which thus consists of forty-four strophes, of sixty-six, or of any other multiple of twenty-two.
Sometimes the strophes are interspersed with versicles from the Psalms.

 Polish Music Journal 3.1.00 - Witkowska-Zaremba: Chopin's Mazurkas
The segments of the mazurkas where the "dramatic peaks" arise, are foreshadowed by a gradual increase in irregularities in strophic structure due to the expansion of the phrases, elisions, etc. Thus, in the Mazurka in F minor, Op.
The disturbances in the rhythm of the strophes and phrases, caused by either halting or delaying harmonic progressions might be considered musical analogies to the literary technique of retardation, which relies upon introducing delays in epic development.
In order to mask the caesuras between the strophes the superimposition of themes is also used: in this process, motifs from a theme that is to be developed in a subsequent strophe appear already in the preceding strophe, thus anticipating the direction of the development of the music.

The second strophe and epode, containing the words spoken by the priest Kalchas, are mostly recited by a single actor, interrupted a few times by lines spoken by the whole group (these are lines in which a god or goddess is mentioned).
The last line of strophe, antistrophe and epode is a sort of refrain ailinon ailinon eipe, to d' eu nikatô; these lines are recited as a climax.
In the fifth strophe, the group as a whole is speaking, accompanying their text with the clapping of hands.

Thus, Gray's ode called "The Progress of Poesy," the strophe, which dwelt in triumphant accents on the beauty, power and ecstasy verse, is answered by the antistrophe, in a depressed and melancholy key:
As Milton says, "strophe, antistrophe and epode were a kind of stanza framed for the music then used with the chorus that sang."
Antistrophe was also a kind of ancient dance, wherein dancers stepped sometimes to the right, and sometimes to the left, still doubling their turns or conversions.

The strophe is simultaneously marked by tension and peaceful rest, like an eagle combining strength and ease, but Goethe puts the emphasis on the peaceful aspect: "with soft spread pinion resting" (J. Dwight version) ("mit sanften Fittich ruhend").
According to this strophe, Fantasy is God's "Schoßkind." Furthermore, she is "ewig beweglich, immer neu." I would argue that here we have an allusion to the Biblical Book of Wisdom 7:21f., where the nature and attributes of personified feminine Wisdom are listed in detail.
In strophe 1, it is stated that Fantasy is in movement and is ever new.

It is a part of the immense alphabetical canticle: The Psalmist divides his work in 22 strophes, which correspond to the succession of the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet.
Each strophe has eight verses, which begin with Hebrew words all of which start with the same letter of the alphabet.
The one which we have just heard is a strophe characterized by the Hebrew letter koph, which presents the man of prayer expressing his intense life of faith and prayer to God (see verses 145-152).

 On "They Feed They Lion"
On first reading, this source seems to be primarily the anger and frustrations of the poor lying in wait along the side of the road—frustrations and anger that grow without purpose, building to some breaking point as emphasized by the frequent repetition of the clause "They lion grow" in lines 5, 11, 18, and 25.
Only in the fourth and fifth strophes do we switch to enjambment—and then basically because our revivalist is now excited, is racing towards the climax, and no longer has time to stop at the end of every line.
It is also with these two strophes that the repetition changes from "out of" to "from"—from a preposition locating one in space to one implying a more specific cause and effect.

 Villancicos
The last line in each strophe followed the rhyme of the refrain." From the zéjel descended a type of vernacular Spanish (and Galician-Portuguese) poetic form known as the cantiga de estribillo (or cantiga de refram).
The estribillo was especially important to the villancico style; Gilbert Chase, author of The Music of Spain, indicates that it was emblematic of the villancico that its "basic pattern rested on the device of the initial refrain" and that otherwise there could be found much latitude in the construction of its verse.
The first part of the strophe (mudanza) has a different melody and rhyme than the refrain; the second part of the strophe (vuelta) repeats the melody and rhyme of the refrain.

 Glossary of Poetic Terms from BOB'S BYWAY, Letter S
The Sapphic strophe consists of three Sapphic lines followed by an Adonic.
In classical poetry, a strophe is the first division in the triadic structure of Pindaric verse, corresponding metrically to the antistrophe which follows it; also, the stanza preceding or alternating with the antistrophe in ancient lyric poetry.
Sidelight: A poem consisting of just one stanza is monostrophic; a poem with the repetition of metrically identical stanzas is homostrophic; a poem not divided into strophic units or that is arranged in irregular stanzas is astrophic.

It is also likely that some odes were delivered not by the chorus in two parts but by the chorus as a unit moving in one direction during the strophe, then in the opposite direction during the antistrophe, and standing still during the epode.
Its structure is essentially that of the classical ode indicated above: the strophe and antistrophe can consist of any number of lines of any lengths following any rhyme scheme of the poet's choosing; they are, however, identical in structure.
The epode differs in structure in whatever ways the poet chooses to make it differ to suit his content; it is usually placed after the antistropbc but may be used between the strophe and antistrophe.
