At the entry of the remains Baby Love, by The Supremes,  Written by Holland–Dozier–Holland

* Greeting * Three of Philip’s favourite haiku (short poems) tiny silences of the little bird’s footsteps in the morning snow

dad’s shoes shined daily following in his footsteps his face gleams in mine

look at those heathers all perky in the sunshine they’re beautiful

Love holds me captive again and I tremble with bitterweet longing As a gale on the mountainside bends the oak tree I am rocked by my love Sappho (‒ ), translated by Cicely Herbert


Tributes to Philip * One minute’s silence * S TO P PING BY WOODS ON A SNOWY EV EN ING Whose woods these are I think I know. His house is in the village though; He will not see me stopping here To watch his woods fill up with snow. My little horse must think it queer To stop without a farmhouse near Between the woods and frozen lake The darkest evening of the year. He gives his harness bells a shake To ask if there is some mistake. The only other sound’s the sweep Of easy wind and downy flake. The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep. Robert Frost (‒)

* We bid farewell to Philip Finale, 5th Symphony – Dmitri Shostakovich (‒)
