A Singer Must Die, by Ivor Steven

A Singer Must Die

Three years ago

On that day

I cried

I cannot forget

The death of a ladies man

When he found his, sisters of mercy

On this day, hallelujah

I now, fondly remember

By the rivers dark

In the land of plenty

Our, Field Commander Cohen

Singing from above, in his, Tower of Song

And below, I’ve attach the entire music/video of the ‘Leonard Cohen Memorial Concert’ from, Centre Bell, Montreal, QC, Canada, November 6, 2017. The video goes for 1 hour and 30 minutes, and is certainly well worth watching. Enjoy !!

G’day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I’m an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I’ve been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I’ve been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

  1. You brought tears to my eyes Ivor. As you know I too am as big a fan of Leonard Cohen. I carried a treasured copy of Flowers for Hitler from the 70s around the world with me for 40+ years and lost it in a move. It ws out of print and I was so upset, but managed to find one on Ebay for 10 times the price. LC was a wordsmith, poet, songwriter extraordinaire. i miss him! Thanks for the beautiful tribute in your poetry and the lovely video. 🖤
