Upon refection and re-reading I find I disagree with myself and wish I had not added the above line to my previous posting. I like the poem as it is.

Hey Jimbo,

Thanks for playing with me, I quite like what you wrote. I enjoy the Infinite haiku but there was a pause in the game.

Re: Chairs

I like this Che :D It’s lovely.
I agree that the poem doesn’t need the last line and might even be better without it, but I also liked the sense of playfulness that came with it. I’m looking forward to reading more of your work.

Cate :)

Re: C.P. Cavafy - Hidden Poems

I’d like to third this sentiment :) these poems are so moving. I’ll be hitting the bookstore today.
Thank you for the posting and the link – I loved hearing Sean Connery recite Ithaca on you tube.

Re: How were you first introduced to the words of Leonard Cohen?

Hi Cate, I remember listening to Leonard's words covered by other people when i was growing up. My mum or dad had an EP of Bridget St John with her wonderful version of Suzanne on it. It took me many many years to find Bridget's version again after I sold the EP when I was 15 so I could by The Soft...

Re: How were you first introduced to the words of Leonard Cohen?

Hi Cate ~ Okay, here's the story I promised, albeit not much of one. Its primary significance lies in its personal meaning for me. My former husband, my lifelong love, is the one who introduced me to Leonard's music. After we were already pretty much separated, I was down where he was staying at hi...

Hi Yankovic,

Yes, I definitely meant definitely, not defiantly. Spelling mistake :oops: I use spell check, but if you don't pay attention you end up with the wrong word.

Re: How were you first introduced to the words of Leonard Cohen?

Hi Yankovic Wow - 10 - so young. I can defiantly see how that video would be funny to you. He must have made quite the impression though to remember him 5 years later! How long have you been out of high school, Cate? I printed your posting and the poem and showed both to my supervisor, yesterday. Sh...

Hello, I’ve been enjoying this forum for the last month but I’m a little shy so it took me a while to post something myself. I’m wondering how people were first introduced to the words of Leonard Cohen. For me it was grade 10 English class. We were briefly studying Canadian poets, which for me was m...
