Jerusalem by Kate Westrop

Dorchester Abbey -England's pleasant land

I took a trip to Dorchester Abbey today and was reminded of Blakes words Jerusalem .

And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon englandís mountains green?
And was the holy lamb of god
On englandís pleasant pastures seen?
And did the countenance divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was jerusalem builded here
Amongst these dark satanic mills?

Bring me my bow of burning gold
Bring me my arrows of desire
Bring me my spear: o clouds unfold!
Bring me my chariot of fire.
I will not cease from mental fight
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand
Till we have built jerusalem
In englandís green and pleasant land.

Very nicely dappled @-)

Kate, I really like the soft dappled light on this one and the stained glass reflections completes the scene.

Kate, you should really post the words with this ( i would be glad to do it for you if you like) After reading the lyrics (poem as it was originally then written to music if I understood right) this photo takes on a whole new look. That dark shadow is very unusual in this photo and I like the stained glass windows lights on the wall.
