To a Nightingale

Postby Kinbote8 » Tue Mar 25, 2008 8:45 pm

I noticed that the last lines of this song, off of Dear Heather, echo the last lines of the John Keats poem Ode to a Nightingale. Cohen sings, "Though you are singing far away/I can no longer hear you". The last words of the Keats poem are "Fled is that music/Do I wake or sleep?"
