Leonard Cohen's poetry

Here is the treasure I found today in our local bookshop and tonight's reading suggestion. Because it's Quebec's National Day tomorrow and Leonard Cohen was a fellow Montrealer (I think I can say this even though we're not of the same generation). I had seen his Book of Longing before, decided that today was the right time to buy it and start reading it. His poetry without music still has music. In fact, his words are music in and of themselves.

I have adored Leonard Cohen since I was 16 years old. No, I don't want to calculate how many decades that is now.
