Surely against me is he turned; he turneth his hand against me all the day. My flesh and my skin hath he made old; he hath broken my bones. He hath builded against me, and compassed me with gall and travail. He hath set me in dark places, as they that be dead of old. He hath hedged me about, that I cannot get out: he hath made my chain heavy. Also when I cry and shout, he shutteth out my prayer. He hath inclosed my ways with hewn stone, he hath made my paths crooked.
He was unto me as a bear lying in wait, and as a lion in secret places. He hath turned aside my ways, and pulled me in pieces: he hath made me desolate. He hath bent his bow, and set me as a mark for the arrow. He hath caused the arrows of his quiver to enter into my reins. I was a derision to all my people; and their song all the day. He hath filled me with bitterness, he hath made me drunken with wormwood. He hath also broken my teeth with gravel stones, he hath covered me with ashes. And thou hast removed my soul far off from peace: I forgat prosperity. My soul hath them still in remembrance, and is humbled in me.
This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.

It is of the LORDs mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. Whenever I listen to song 5 I think of you. I once asked Sammy Fain, the song's composer, which was his favorite recording, and he reeled off about 40 he enjoyed - country, big band, rhythm'n'blues. But, if you fell in love with it as a wartime ballad, you always hear it in the voices of the day, as the last dance under the glitterball, with some big-band canary up on the stage. Nevertheless, it's not a war song, not really.
The plot is basic boy-meets-girl, but the boy's a foreign correspondent based in Paris and, when he's called back to the States, the girl's left behind. Hence the song:. How could it miss? But it did. Right This Way ran 15 performances, which suggests an awful lot of theatergoers never stuck around for the big ballad.
The lyrical imagery is unexceptional but in the tune you hear something melancholy and uncertain and even in the final bars Mahleresque. That's what made the song in In war, you can't even bet on ordinariness, on small cafes and parks across the way. Kahal's lyric is a kind of talisman for parted lovers, an accumulation of treasured places where memory lingers. I'll be seeing you Even when she and the Duke of York were courting, you'd be unlikely to find a Bowes-Lyon in a Corner House an English pun: if you're American, don't worry about it.
I doubt she ever visited a municipal park except to name it after her husband. Yet the imagery of love songs is a kind of aspirational ordinariness - the ennobling of trivialities - and they speak to princes as well as paupers. The songwriter has to say it for everyone, for the GIs shipping out tomorrow, and for more specialized scenarios. It turns out you don't have to have done any of those things to recognize your own love in those lines, as the Queen Mum did.
Nothing special, nothing dazzling, nothing to warrant Cole Porter putting you in a glittering high-society laundry-list about Longchamps. But a love that endures.

Like I'll Be Seeing You , those public figures who fondly endure seem to be the ones who touch something deep within the Human Soul. I should clarify my post of a moment ago. I'm not a follower of the Royal Family and really have little interest in them.

I also can't say that I'm well read about them. I do, however, think that the Queen has been a great source of stability over the decades and that her regular audiences with Prime Ministers have probably lent considerable wisdom to decisions at different times.
Those times are sadly long gone now I think, and they won't be coming back. Northern Islamabad, even if it remains within the EUtopia, will have little use for the current Royal Family and they might be best off if they refurbish the Queen Mary, set sail, and never look back.
No need to clarify your first comment, Tom. Even staunch republican types tend to have enormous admiration— even affection— for the Queen. Her steadfast sense of duty and the quiet dignity she conveys are of an already bygone era. Who knows, Charles may even convert. Meanwhile, Americans ditched the monarchy and have been trying to get one back ever since. I've often thought that the US, lacking a royal class, essentially created one through pop culture.

There are all levels of 'royalty' and they are given special treatment everywhere, even in public spaces, when compared to the average commoner. You can walk up to a commoner in public and say hi, but if you try that with a celebrity you'll be muscled off by their security detail and nobody will think twice about it being unusual at all. Of course this approach to selecting royalty has its benefits, the chief one being that they're selected and not necessarily born into it - although the Clinton and Kennedy and whatever other families may dispute that. Since they're selected they can also be deposed without the need for an uprising.
Everyone just moves on and the afflicted 'royalty' ends up "Currently residing in the 'Where Are They Now' file. A toupee in the cabert scene. Their 'Clutching at Straws' album was both the Forest and the Trees; or at least that's how I see it. I recall the Queen visiting my hometown when they travelled across Canada; it must have been the mid-seventies. In the latter part of the day they were to attend a church near my house, so I took a break from riding my bike and went down to see what all the fuss was about.
There were people standing around in groups to watch her arrive at the church but I opted to get a closer look and placed myself just behind a waist-high wrought iron fence that abutted the entrance they were going to use.
She passed within a few feet of me as I was even closer to her than the colour party or honour guard that was there. She seemed rather pretty. I somehow don't think that sort of thing would work out for a scruffy kid from a small prairie town in this day and age. I guess the internet has brought us all closer together.
