For Anne Poem by Leonard Cohen

For Anne

Rating: 3.8


With Annie gone,
whose eyes to compare
with the morning sun?

Not that Idid compare,
But I do compare
Now that she's gone.

Ring the bells that still can ring Forget your perfect offering There is a crack, a crack in everything That's how the light gets in.

Three exclamation points to celebrate the death of the narrator's love interest. You must be a callous fool and complete ignoramus incapable of reading, let alone feelings of compassion.

Exquisite poem of love. "Not that I DID compare/ I DO, now that you are gone" …. Brings me to tears, Leonard
