Nigel Paterson Obit: Leonard Cohen (1934-2016) (47) RE: Obit: Leonard Cohen (1934-2016) 27 Nov 16

I've said over the years that poems don't necessarily make good lyrics & vice versa. Leonard Cohen's work drives a coach & horses through that opinion! I believe it to be true that Leonard Cohen saw himself in his formative years as a poet. He turned to songwriting to make ends meet. The serendipity of that decision has resulted in the creation of some of the finest songs written in the 20th & 21st centuries. Leonard Cohen's musical legacy will, most likely, outlive us all.
                        With respect & thanks for a life, well lived, RIP Leonard Cohen.
