What I'm planning for my Laurel ceremony

Order of the Laurel called.
Three who will speak for me - Isolde, Mira and Hlutwige.
I am called into court. Ulfredsheim processes in from back and stops well short of the Order.
(I continue on to front)

MORE...

Isolde releases me from fealty, and she and Mira put a belt of six colors on me. I swear fealty to TRMs upon the Crown of State. Medallion, circlet. Rise and greet the Order.
(I step to the center)
“I would beg a boon of Your Majesties. In the tradition of my house, I would swear an oath before You, the members of the Order and the populace.”
(Ulfred brings me a horn of my mead.)
“I stand before you now as a master of the clarseach, the harp. But what of the other skills that a true bard of the highest calling must possess? That of the filidh, the poet; the seannachaidh, the storyteller; the brehon, the wise counselor?”
(raise horn)
“All these will I learn, though well it may take me to the end of my days. I will endeavor to teach all who seek, for knowledge itself is a living thing, and so it is carried through the ages. By doing so, the knowledge will live on, and I may serve the people, my peers and the Crown of An Tir.”
(drain horn)
Witness!!
(process out)
