Leonard Cohen


Tower Of Song


Well my friends are gone and my hair is grey
I ache in the places where I used to play
And I'm crazy for love but I'm not coming on
I'm just paying my rent every day
Oh in the Tower of Song

    Leonard Cohen is one of the most significant people not assasinated during the sixties and seventies. Sometimes, throughout history, there are fires, and there are faces that are looked into by the lights of fires. Faces to lead, faces to follow as a civilization for decades- only to end up beside the same fire. Mr. Cohen will be a pundit for every generation beyond his birth. Imagine the forethought and you will be inspired. (Report) Reply

    Oh Leonard, are you still out there? I have been with you since the early seventies, when I picked up a copy of your collected verse. You clearly, inspired me to write poetry. I have a few pieces here at poemhunter, nothing too great though. Most of my poetry is collected at PoetrySoup.com under the user name Catie Lindsey In college, I did a thesis on your work, life, and times, ect... I can't help it, I have always loved you, and have secretly wished to be with you so many many times over the years. I have one poem called 'Where's Leonard Cohen' who else could understand my abstract mind. Oh Leonard, are you still a teacher of the heart, and is Jesus still a sailor, and has Annie finally left the picture? :) Please contact me if you recieve this little note, it could be the hilight of my lifetime.
    Much love to you Leonard, much love...
