My all time favourite guy ♥ An old write from the archives ....

COHEN

 

What can I say my love

you take me a thousand kisses deep

with your awesome poetry,

then dance me to the end of love

with your music and song.

 

I knew you were my man

with the first hallelujah

and that you would always be

coming back to me, if it be your will

I will stay in your secret life.

 

 Take this longing by the rivers dark

and watch the night come on,

when we have loved enough

in new skins for old under lady midnight

you know who by the fire

is a heart with no companion

I like Cohen's, Anthem and Hallelujah and some of his other works. I love his voice. The Persian poet Rumi said, "We're all broken, that is how the light of heaven gets inside." Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "There is a crack in everything God has made." Cohen took both thoughts and put them together in Anthem saying, "There is a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in." I always thought that was his best line. I really enjoyed this poem.

Thank you Julie :)
A clever tribute to a great writer and entertainer, Stella! Many of my favourite Leonard songs are mentioned in this poetic piece of yours. I have just under 20 of Leonard Cohen's albums on CD, plus two of his poetry books and a DVD. I sing several of his songs myself, although my singing voice is quite different from that deep warm growl that Leonard had. If pushed to name my favourite Cohen song I would say "Famous Blue Raincoat."

He certainly had a way with words. He was a fine orator too.

Thank you Jacob, :)
I too stand in awe of Cohen's poetry and music, especially "Hallelujah." It inspired me to write a poem which was accepted by a national magazine.
