Monday Bunday – A tribute to Archie Ann

My best pal and partner in crime Archie Ann has left me today and I am heartbroken. We are very sad that she is gone, but know that her feisty spirit will live on. Farewell brave Archie, you were the coolest friend this little bunny could have ever had – Save some basil for me at the Bridge. ~Fiona Bun

She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o’er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express,
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

And on that cheek, and o’er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!

  1. ok you just made me cry again (not hard to do but…) i totally didn’t expect the tribute.

    thank you Fi (and family). It’s probably the hardest because it was so senseless… she was here when I went to bed and gone when I woke up. … reminder to make every moment count.

    thank you.

  11. Dear Fiona Bun and Lando,
    We are so sad too…we cannot believe Archi Ann’s gone :( Mum says she’s now met Nik, BillieBun and Sir Harvey at the bridge and is binkying with perfect legs, but she’s been crying too and it makes us upset. :'(
    She said, one day we all will be meeting again at the bridge…

  28. Fiona bun,

    We were so sad to hear about Archi Ann. We went over to her bloggie to tell her mom how sorry we were to hear the news. It makes us so sad too. Archi was one of the coolest bunnies around and she will be remembered fondly. We will miss her.
