Sisters Of Mercy

Rating: 3.2
Oh the sisters of mercy, they are not departed or gone.
They were waiting for me when I thought that I just can't go on.
And they brought me their comfort and later they brought me this song.
Oh I hope you run into them, you who've been travelling so long.

This is just the first four lines of Leonard Cohen's song. Only a hint of its quality.

So touchingly inscribed, beautiful poem. It is justified for being chosen this poem as the modern poem of the poem of the day.

I've been listening to this rather spiritual, poignant poem in song form by Leonard Cohen for many years. I think it is based on real encounter with two women Cohen met while travelling. It is such a shame that the full text is not included here. Indeed only the first four lines are included. I particular like the line, missing here, which include a wonderfully realised metaphor, ' if your life is a leaf that the seasons tear off and condem'.
