Leonard Cohen – I

Nu numai o voce fenomenală, ci și un muzician fantastic și un poet minunat. După cum vedeți, numai superlative despre unul dintre artiștii compleți ai lumii. Mai jos, două din poeziile mele preferate scrise de el:

Hey, That’s No Way To Say Goodbye

I loved you in the morning, our kisses deep and warm,

your hair upon the pillow like a sleepy golden storm,

yes, many loved before us, I know that we are not new,

in city and in forest they smiled like me and you,

but now it’s come to distances and both of us must try,

your eyes are soft with sorrow,

Hey, that’s no way to say goodbye.

I’m not looking for another as I wander in my time,

walk me to the corner, our steps will always rhyme

you know my love goes with you as your love stays with me,

it’s just the way it changes, like the shoreline and the sea,

but let’s not talk of love or chains and things we can’t untie,

your eyes are soft with sorrow,

Hey, that’s no way to say goodbye.

Not so Friendly

Not so friendly today,

are you, darling?

I, too, find myself

in a distant mood.

Maybe it’s time

to take the long way home,

the back streets

where we will be assaulted

by thugs

because we are rich,

and spit on by old women

who don’t like

your bare arms.

Then how about

caramel custard

In that place they know us?

Yes, I’m feeling better

about you, already.

I’m looking forward

to our white hotel room

where the two puppets

can be naked at last,

and in each other’s arms,

surrender to the strings.

Iar aici, una dintre melodiile preferate:
