Leonard Cohen [Oct. 27th, 2009|04:50 pm]


Poem ("I heard of a man ...") from "Let Us Compare Mythologies"

I heard of a man
who says words so beautifully
that if he only speaks their name
women give themselves to him.

If I am dumb beside your body
while silence blossoms like tumors on our lips.
it is because I hear a man climb stairs and clear his throat outside the door.

PS: Странно, Коэна не представляю молодым, а Боба Дилана - старым.
