Around the time of The Bishop of Buffalo Rev Hammer had the Scarecrow Parish News published. As far as I know, only two issues of this newsletter ever came out. Here they are. Don't bother to order any of the merchandise articles or to contact the address or info line. They do not exist any longer.

Dear Scarecrow,
Greetings from everyone at the Parish News Head Quarters.
This issue is full of exciting news and gossip, including details of the 24 hr. info line, a new range of merchandise, and a full German tour in May. Rev will be touring with a new backing band - a bunch of friends we're sure you will enjoy meeting.
Rev and the band had a great time on the Red Sky Coven and UK Tours, and are looking forward to being back in Germany.
Finally - a big thank you for your support over the last year - we look forward to seeing you on tour!

Sweet Spirit! Sister of that orphan one,
Whose empire is the name thou weepest on,
In my heart's temple I suspend to thee
These votive wreaths of withered memory.

Poor captive bird! who, from thy narrow cage,
Pourest such music, that it might assuage
The rugged hearts of those who prisoned thee,
Were they not deaf to all sweet melody;
This song shall be thy rose; its petals pale
Are dead, indeed, my adopted Nightingale!
But soft and fragrant is the faded blossom,
And it has no thorn left to wound thy bosom.

High, spirit-winged Heart! who dost for ever
Beat thine unfeeling bars with vain endeavour,
Till those bright plumes of thought, in which arrayed
It over-soared this low and worldly shade,
Lie shattered; and thy panting, wounded breast
Stains with dear blood its unmaternal nest!
I weep vain tears: blood would less bitter be,
Yet poured forth gladlier, could it profit thee.

Seraph of Heaven! too gentle to be human,
Veiling beneath that radiant form of Woman
All that is insupportable in thee
Of light, and love, and immortality!
Sweet Benediction in the eternal Curse!
Veiled Glory of this lampless Universe!
Thou Moon beyond the clouds! Thou living Form
Among the Dead! Thou Star above the Storm!

(P. B. Shelley)
