Past Ripe

Fertile is love –
an ancient fruit tree
soft and up-giving

were life root
almost too wet –
moony world

Secret:  I wither,
am stone berry –
no rain at lake

walk bucolic earth
follow winter cover
shed colour

will live,

    1. Well that brought a tear to my eye – the words, yes, and the fact that I am certain you channeled my dear friend Nadine in sending me this song. She loved Leonard. I lost her last year to cancer. Thank you, Ivor. This means a lot.

      1. Oh a pure coincidence, but I think sometimes things happen for a reason. Yes one of my fav’ songs too. I always think of Carole too. Leonard Cohen’s words in his songs are always so true and touching, may all the sweetest of memories fall on you
