So happy Leonard himself prepared it! The Flame is the best title! And reminds me of his last poem shared here: What Happens To Th...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

Fare you well my nightingale It's the first time I dare to tell: Last year at the middle of november I was sitting on our garden bench in Germany near Munich next to a pakistani friend of my family who helped doing some late garden work before winter.

Re: 'Who cares for Cohen?' article

Thanks a lot for this link! I mean, one question of the article "How aware of Greece were these writers?" you have to ask. How aware of Grece were all of them, also Leonard Cohen?

The spirit is moving on

Amazing how the song's spirit is moving on to more and more! Liel Leibovitz's words about Cohen's ISAAC-lyrics fascinated me, it actually didn't let me go since days and kept me thinking about it all the time.

I climbed up to Cohen's rose on its ladder of thornes

Hi everybody! Happy to be here! I'd like to tell you something about my interests in Cohen's songs, poetry and novels. I have to apologize for my language errors cause I am german and my English is not that good. I am living near Munic and was an early Cohen fan and then again a late Cohen fan. I cl...
