  And did those feet in ancient time.
Walk upon Englands mountains green:
And was the holy Lamb of God,
On Englands 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 Englands green & pleasant Land
William Blake

    Just the title alone is eerie and then the photo, very eerie...where are all the people, and is that a cemetary?

    I've added the poem now. Except it's Scotland and long since a mill. And I'm not religious. The picture was taken in a cemetry yes. A strange inner city place dating back to the 18th century.
