Tonight, I Hear A Light

A great post from a fellow poet and Leonard Cohen fan:

Ivor.Plumber/Poet

Tonight, I Hear A Light

From his tower of song

The teacher heralds his story

Thought provoking and foreboding

His words, are wise and profound

Almost a lullaby to your inner child

Or shaking your soul, almost to death

Recognising the ancient past

Honouring a vaccinated future

In a world that has been torn

His personal eulogy, is solemn but not forlorn

My heart will keep living the romance

Thank you for the dance

 “It’s Torn”  Lyrics, by Leonard Cohen

I see you in windows that open so wide
There’s nothing beyond them and no one inside
You kick off your sandals and shake out your hair
The salt on your shoulders like sparks in the air
There’s silt on your ankles and sand on your feet
The river too shallow, the ocean too deep
You smile at your suffering, the sweetest reprieve
Why did you leave us, why did…

  1. Thank you dear Kim. This is a post that I’m privileged to be able to share with as many readers as possible. The insightful wisdom of Leonard Cohen’s words during his time of finality are profoundly beautiful
