Dodi al Fayed, the rakish Egyptian-born heir to the billion-dollar Harrods fortune, seemed an unlikely consort for Britain's fairy princess. An unreconstructed playboy, his taste in books seemed to run mainly to a little black one that once contained names such as Brooke Shields and Tawny Kitaen. His past was littered with women he had romanced and rejected, as well as with creditors still hoping to be paid for meals consumed and lodging used long ago.
Goodbye England's rose May you ever grow in our hearts You were the grace that placed itself Where lives were torn apart You called out to our country And you whispered to those in pain Now you belong to heaven And the stars spell out your name chorus And it seems to me you lived your life Like a candle in the wind Never fading with the sunset When the rain set in And your footsteps will always fall here Along England's greenest hills Your candle's burned out long before Your legend ever will Loveliness we've lost These empty days without your smile This torch we'll always carry For our nation's golden child And even though we try The truth brings us to tears All our words cannot express The joy you brought us through the years
" And did those feet in ancient time " is a short poem by William Blake from the preface to his epic Milton a Poem , one of a collection of writings known as the Prophetic Books . The date of 1804 on the title page is probably when the plates were begun, but the poem was printed c. 1808. [ 1 ] Today it is best known as the anthem " Jerusalem ", with music written by Sir Hubert Parry in 1916. The poem was inspired by the apocryphal story that a young Jesus , accompanied by his uncle Joseph of Arimathea , a tin merchant, travelled to what is now England and visited Glastonbury during Jesus' lost years . [ 2 ] The legend is linked to an idea in the Book of Revelation (3:12 and 21:2) describing a Second Coming , wherein Jesus establishes a new Jerusalem . The Christian Church in general, and the English Church in particular, has long used Jerusalem as a metaphor for Heaven , a place of universal love and peace. [ 3 ]
