Leonard Cohen Poetry Live - Toronto 2012 - Intro to Alexandra Leaving – December 4
Published on Mar 11, 2013
"Even though she sleeps upon your satin;
Even though she wakes you with a kiss.
Do not say this (the) moment was imagined;
Do not stoop to strategies like this.
As someone long prepared for this to happen,
Go firmly to the window. Drink it in.
Exquisite music. Alexandra laughing.
Your firm commitments tangible again."
Leonard Cohen introducing "Alexandra Leaving" through the art of spoken word.
Majestic is a word to describe this clip; "showing impressive beauty or dignity".
This is another moment that I recently found I had captured from this lovely evening. I hope you can enjoy it as well. Toronto, December 4th 2012. ACC - Air Canada Centre.
