Re: Happy Birthday, Leonard!

To a Poet Living Long:

Happy Birthday Leonard Cohen
Long persists your dulcet tone
Your genes were good
Your karma right
So you don't have to say "Good Night"
Unless the climate wipes us out
You'll still be with us, have no doubt
Should Armageddon blow its horn
We'll hear you singing on that morn.

Re: Esther Cohen

Thanks Dick and Lizzytysh for helping us to know and appreciate Esther even more than we did. What a blessing and at times a burden it must have been to be the nearest relative to a giant like Leonard Cohen, and how graciously she played this supporting role.
