The Poet of song had left us. Leonard Cohen.

One of the first record albums I purchased was by Leonard Cohen. I bought it in 1970 and have enjoyed his poetry and music for over 45 years. He ranks up there with the great writers of our time.

The Poet of song

Thank you Leonard Cohen. You taught me. Words had great meaning and could come alive. You were the Poet of song. I saw you in concert in 1978 and 1979 in Germany. You were a legend to many already. The great Poet had left us. He shall never be forgotten. The word-men and word-women will hold dearly to his special song and voice. I miss you already Leonard Cohen. I hope you are singing in the tower of song.

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and spent the last 14 years teaching in an incrediable hybrid school setting. My dissertation topic and research were how teachers experience becoming who teachers, as human subjects. For me, teaching is a calling and vocation that allows me to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what will call me. We have begun a small consulting and leadership firm called Rocky River Leadership & Consulting Ltd.

  1. I was deeply saddened by Leonard’s death. I’d hoped against hope for one more CD after his most recent. I never had the opportunity to see him in concert but I have played his music for more than half my life, and my life is pretty long! Goodbye, goodbye.
