I wish for you a life...

wild songs
I wish for you a life where your blood sings
with the voice of an eager, wild thing.
With a voice that says I am here
& in this short time,
this is the song I sing
because I can.

Mr Glover will commence his duties after next Sunday.. Our Creswick correspondent writes:—“ Referring to my paragraph of yesterday, stating that the Rev. James Glover, Incumbent of St. John’s Church; Creswick, had been requested to take charge of Christ Church Pro-Cathedral, pending the arrival of the new vicar from England,
