palinode (plural palinodes)
- A poem in which the author retracts something said in an earlier poem.
- 1814, Sir Walter Scott, Waverley; or, 'Tis Sixty Years Since,
- 2004, Jaspitos, "I Take It Back", in The Spectator (London, UK); Jan 24, 2004.
- The more lighthearted palinodes were more successful, such as Geoff Horton's recantation of his youthful view that a martini should be shaken rather than stirred.
