My reason for picking this song is because Leonard Cohen, in my humble opinion- is one of the best poets alive today. (& a Canadian!!) He rings true- his words don’t come cheap and he’s hauntingly romantic. He has always been my inspiration and I”m sure for many others. I actually had a fight with the head of the English dept. at my University over him, I stood up for him when he dismissed him more or less as “lucky”…

No doubt the professor was a frustrated writer! This song reminds me of a sweet time and place- when life was very carefree.
