    I am looking for the name of a poem I read many years ago...

    I think it may have been by Leonard Cohen.

    The text had words like.. ' raindrops on morning leaves.. I kiss you.. like dew caressing the grass of emerald green.. I touch you.....

    It is a beautiful poem and I am trying desperately to remember what it is. I have bad recall abilities due to traumatic brain injury so any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance: Janice

    I remember reading a poem at school about a spooky abandoned ship. all the chairs were knocked over as if people had left suddenly and ithink there were spooky birds maybe ravens or vultures too. Anyone know what I'm on about?
