Canções com lágrimas de alegria - Jerusalém



Música de Charles Hubert Hastings Parry de 1916
Poema de William Blake
Gravura de William Blake

"JERUSALEM

And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England's mountains green?
And was the holy Lamb of God
On England's pleasant pastures seen?
And did the Countenance Divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here
Among 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 England's green and pleasant land."

Milton (1804-1808)
William Blake

Sempre que aqui venho, é grande a minha admiração pela variedade dos temas,pela excelência das imagens. Só posso desejar que este Expresso continue a sua longa viagem de Ocidente a Oriente, por tempos infindos.
