I thought it would be fun characterization and description practice to come up with eulogies. I’ll start. Please join in!

I love this. I always thought I’d start my character eulogies with a poem.😄
“A heart so very bold with right, It lights the veins with spark, And carries them through the night, And drags them through the dark.”

This is a great idea!
“He was born a villain but died a hero.”
“Where he was not strong of might, he was strong of heart. He always kept an eye open for the outcasts, those like himself who would not please others with someone they were not.”

“Even if the way he chose wasn’t the right way, he still wanted the best for us.”
“None of us liked him in the first place. We didn’t know who he was, or where he had come from. But now that we’re here, all I can say is…his presence will be missed, as well as his smile.”
"I set a melody upon the scenery I saw outside my window;
It's beginning in my spacy world."

“Loliness wasn’t the final word to describe the future of that old man. Nor rest, nor safeness. In fact, who could see boldness fitting so well with silver hair?”December 30, 2020 at 9:29 pm #123368The Fledgling Artist@the-fledgling-artist
“Only death, could pull away a hand as steadfast and loyal as hers, and unclasp it from my own. It’s like, when everyone else was done with you, she’d still be there… for some reason. I know I’ll never forget that.”
A smile touched the corners of his mouth. The sort no one else could really see, but you could just sort of, feel it. In that moment he almost believed all the stories she had told him. Maybe it wasn’t for nothing. Maybe.
“May the Faeries guide her soul.”

“There are some who would say she never spoke, that she could not speak. But she did. Through her eyes and her smile, and the innocent glint in her eye. She spoke more clearly than any of us ever will.”

“There were more of us, once. More who could make the mountains tremble in our rapture, or the waters boil with our ardor. We could speak, not with a glance, or a gesture, but with a thought. We could feel the life around us; the final sigh of the eldest ram, first breath of the newborn kid, even the heartbeat of the very world beneath our feet.
“Yet now, there is only one. The others have all gone, their memories fading with each passing year. Soon they will all be wiped away by the sands of time. Just one remains to continue on, alone and bereft. Just Jericho, last of all.”
