The dodo once lived, and he does n't live now; Yet, why should a cloud overshadow our brow? The loss of that bird ne'er should trouble our brains, For, though he is gone, still our claret remains. Sing dodo–dodo–jolly dodo! Hurrah! in his name let our cups overflow!
We know that he perished; yet why shed a tear? This generous bowl all our bosoms can cheer. The dodo is gone, and, no doubt, in his day He delighted, as we do, to moisten his clay. Sing dodo—dodo—jolly dodo! Hurrah! in his name let our cups overflow!
-- From 'The Dodo,' The Living age, Volume 1, Issue 6, June 22, 1844
