Love of French poem (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

ode

Here is my best explanation:

'poem' is the definition.

(ode is a kind of poem)

'love of french' is the subsidiary indication.

'love' becomes 'o' (In tennis, 'love' means 'zero').

'of french' becomes 'de' (**).

'o'+'de'='ode'

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for ode that I've seen before include "A poem celebrating person or event", "Poem in praise of doe", "A poem about a doe", "(Railway)system", "Verse form", "Lyric poem", "Poem expressing noble feelings", "A lyric poem", "Poetic composition" and "A poem in praise".)
