With a love so vast and shattered…

I greet you from the other side
Of sorrow and despair
With a love so vast and shattered
It will reach you everywhere
And I sing this for the captain
Whose ship has not been built
For the mother in confusion
Her cradle still unfilled

For the heart with no companion
For the soul without a king
For the prima ballerina
Who cannot dance to anything

Through the days of shame that are coming
Through the nights of wild distress
Tho’ your promise count for nothing
You must keep it nonetheless

You must keep it for the captain
Whose ship has not been built
For the mother in confusion
Her cradle still unfilled

For the heart with no companion …

I greet you from the other side …

(Heart With No Companion – by Leonard Cohen)

 

And because today is also Remembrance Day here in Canada, here is Leonard Cohen reciting  “In Flanders Fields” by John McCrae. He recorded this last year for Legion Magazine.

We lost another great artist today.  Thank god he left us his words and music.

The Raggedy Man and I drove to town for the ceremony at the Legion.  Home now and the fire is lit.

Be kind to each other.

Go easy~p
