Leonard Cohen - Poem by Francie Lynch

Some writers are like comets,
A flash, and soon gone;
Ones that burned brightest,
Are rocks that don't burn long.

Some writers are like meteors,
Burning hot through spheres;
As meteorites they stay with us,
Though brighter in younger years.

One writer, Leonard Cohen,
No brighter light revealed;
Still yearning for the fire,
Still burning all these years.
