Leonard Cohen


Dance Me To The End Of Love Poem by Leonard Cohen


Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic 'til I'm gathered safely in
Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

    You're more a philosopher of dance than a poet of dance, although you are both of them by excellence. Your cerebral and controversial love is an awareness in metamorphosis, perfectly enclosed and following its cyclical process.This poem is a piece of art. (Report) Reply
