Leonard Cohen

Anthem - Poem by Leonard Cohen

The birds they sang
at the break of day
Start again
I heard them say
Don't dwell on what
has passed away
or what is yet to be.

    Another song on my DVD ' Leonard Cohen Live in London'. A standout song, works equally well as a poem. Some verses missing. (Report) Reply

    What a thoughtful poem
    Short and sharp.
