A Friend's eulogy for Leonard

https://soundcloud.com/henrytozer/dear-leonard

I introduced Henry to Leonard and he has been delighted to discover the vastness of Leonard's store of treasures these last few years. Here is a poem he wrote after Leonard died.

Leonard

Leonard He died days ago I didn’t know A few knew Now We all know We want details How where when why Who was with him What were the last words Heard Before he breathed His last breath In The City Of Angels He left the stage Split the scene This doesn’t mean The scene was real We dreamed him He dream...

Re: FROM LEONARD: HAPPENS TO THE HEART

Thanks! I Googled it and found this: Where did the phrase "Say Uncle" come from? Jonathon Green, Slang lexicographer. Author: Green's Dictionary of Slang (2010) Written 27 Dec 2011 The first recorded example of say uncle, also found as cry uncle, and meaning to beg someone to stop an acti...

Re: FROM LEONARD: HAPPENS TO THE HEART

I have read the poem many many times and tried to translate it into Italian. There is one thing I'd like to understand: You say Uncle, then it's simple What happens to the heart This Uncle , is he a member of Leonard's family, or is this some kind of saying either in the English language or in Nort...

Re: FROM LEONARD: HAPPENS TO THE HEART

Bonsoir Sean, and thanks for your poem! Unfortunately I'm too daft to identify the rhyme you mention, but never mind. As for not needing moon, nor sun — well, of course not (except for those among us who don't live outside passing time, that is). On the other hand, not long ago a fool said to me: &...

Re: FROM LEONARD: HAPPENS TO THE HEART

Leonard 'happens to the heart' If the heart is very lucky This is true indeed. (The illusory-ness of all things necessarily includes the illusory-ness of the judgement which pronounces them illusory, too. — Epimenides-paradox; or call it Ouroboros, or samsara.) This heart is lucky too To have run i...

Re: FROM LEONARD: HAPPENS TO THE HEART

It's not 'if the heart is very lucky', Sean. It's that 'it is written'. Period. I don't believe in blind luck either, so I agree. (Poetic license) There is a cause/effect rule/relationship in our existences so in that way I would agree; if it is written in our cause/effect script of our potentialit...

Re: FROM LEONARD: HAPPENS TO THE HEART

I saw something recently (maybe here?)

There are two kinds of people
Those who love Leonard Cohen
And those who are wrong

I thought/think it is probably true

Re: FROM LEONARD: HAPPENS TO THE HEART

Just before the end
Of a sumptuous feast
Of presence
Of poetry
Of performance
We are presented with
Another serving

Leonard 'happens to the heart'

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

The cover is similar to Songs From A Room. Yes , sort of . I notice he has a cigarette in his hand , but hope he hasn't started smoking again. I would bet that this is probably an artistic expression of 'poetic licence' and also a visual artistic/poetic statement and also an affirmation of Leonard'...
