When this news broke there could only be one headline for today!

A Child is Born

Unto us a child is born.
Two lives creating one.
One in hundreds of thousands born today,
the twenty-second of July.
One in hundreds born in the minute
of four twenty-four pm.
Souls linked by synchronicity
of lines of life.

Unto us a son is given,
weighing in at eight pounds six ounces.
The bare statistics ushering a life
into a formative channel.
The Prince of Cambridge.
The future king.
The royal line preserved.

And the covenant shall be upon his shoulders.
Will they be broad
in the world of the future?
Will they be brave
in the inherited world of climate change,
of deprivation, of social change?
Will there be conscience, compassion?

And his name shall be called …….
