I've been listening to him since the 60's, when I would sit cross-legged on my bed and put the record on.  I introduced a lot of other girls in the dorm to Leonard Cohen that first year.  I thought I was saving their souls while improving their taste in music.  Wonder if any of it stuck?

It's okay - you're probably a bit too young.  I was attracted to his work when I started college because he was a poet.  I liked the literary connection to his music, because I was an English major and heavily into poetry at the time.

I just finished watching "Leonard Cohen Live in London" on KQED (PBS). His voice isn't what it used to be, but I really enjoyed the concert. He's amazing.

Love his music and his poetry too. Thought I'd share one of his 'greatest hits' with you. Enjoy!

A KITE IS A VICTIM

By Leonard Cohen
From: The Spice-Box of Earth
March 1965

A kite is a victim you are sure of.
You love it because it pulls
gentle enough to call you master,
strong enough to call you fool;
because it lives
like a desperate trained falcon
in the high sweet air,
and you can always haul it down
to tame it in your drawer.

A kite is a fish you have already caught
in a pool where no fish come,
so you play him carefully and long,
and hope he won’t give up,
or the wind die down.

A kite is the last poem you’ve written,
so you give it to the wind,
but you don’t let it go
until someone finds you
something else to do.

A kite is a contract of glory
that must be made with the sun,
so make friends with the field
the river and the wind,
then you pray the whole cold night before,
under the travelling cordless moon,
to make you worthy and lyric and pure.

Hi Aracelyst...welcome to The Timeless Beauty!

I'm not terribly familiar with Leonard Cohen but I believe he's a singer/songwriter. I know he's quite famous so you could probably Google his name and learn a lot about him.

Well... I cannot say I am a fan now, I used to. I still  like the poems. When it comes to ballads I prefer Bob Dylan.
