Memorial Service for Dudley the Egg (June 2010)
« on: June 14, 2010, 01:08:37 PM »
:heart Memorial Service For Dudley the Egg, June 14, 2010 :heart

Order of Service:
Welcoming remarks
Opening words and passing of the feather, Mishi.

Euleggy part 1, and music (with apologies to Wordsworth):

What though the radiance which was once so bright
Be now for ever taken from my sight,
Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of Dudley in the grass, of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind;
In the primal sympathy
Which having been must ever be;
In the soothing thoughts that spring
When the cam's not buffering;
In the faith that looks through death,
In years that bring the philosophic mind.

<a href="" target="_blank"></a>

Heartfelt words by Hornbyites; lunch.

Closing: euleggy part 2, and last musical selection:

Do not stand by my shell and weep. I am not there, I do not screep.
I live on as part of mom; I am with her, I am not gone!
We soar above the world, so high - together still, with her I fly.
Do not stand by my shell and cry. I am not there, I did not die!
Next year again upon this nest I shall lie beneath her breast.
At last, my turn will come next spring, when I will test my little wing.
Do not stand by my shell and grieve. I live on; in that, believe.

mishikeenhquay: (13:12) All of Nature has the wisdom to follow the Natural Laws. All of Nature knows how to live in harmony and use this wisdom in a good way, with exception of the human being. Often we misuse this wisdom. Wisdom always remains with those who use it in the proper way. Nature has used this wisdom well, so now we need to go to Her so we humans can relearn and change our lives. May we start doing this today, before it is too late.

gzebear: (13:14) Eulogy for Dudley:Dudley was good egg. And that which we call Dudley was very much alive, has always been alive, and still lives on – not an embryo, not an eaglet, but still a joyous mass of Life. Who knows whence came Dudley or, after Mom’s crop, where the journey leads? Yet Dudley is too a part of each of us, the idea that didn’t hatch but stayed around and served a purpose till one day splat, and gone. We clean up the mess, move on, and it fed us nonetheless. So I say … Long Live Dudley. Long Remember Dudley.
