I am not familiar with Leonard Cohen that I know of.  All my life I have had trouble with my hearing.  Discerning words to songs has been nearly impossible. I would … before the computer…search out copies of the lyrics to songs that I found the music haunting me or I found myself… in discord ☺… humming the music endlessly.  

Thanks to a ten dollar amplifier for my computer, (an “as seen on tv amplifier Emoji) I was able to play, and hear the u-tube versions

of Leonard Cohen (awesome…I want to find out more about his writing and music), kd lang … a favorite of mine, and Jeff Buckley,RIP who would have had the 3rd place of those I enjoyed the most.

The following is what I wrote while listening to the song in it’s various renditions.

===========================================================

.

Halleujah ! Hallejuhah !

.

In joy, peace or grief,

invigorating or haunting

soulful and rejoicing

as  Hallelujah !, Hallelujah !  

is sung

from

deep

within.

Eyes shining,

souls

on

fire.

.

Tonight my spirit

stirred

in

another

place.

.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

(deep sighs,

no

exclamation points)

no

raising of arms

no

praising the Lord

haunting

sad

deep sighs

come

from

within

.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

 .

Hallelujah

a new meaning

feels my soul.

of

grief,

sadness,

ripped,

torn,

heart

and

soul.

.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah .

sadness

and grief.

our greatest

losses..

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

from

the

depths

.

no

raising of arms

no

praising the Lord

haunting

sad

deep sighs

come

from

You are among toads

“Think as I think,” said a man,
“or you are abominably wicked;
you are a toad.”
And after I thought of it,
I said, “I will, then, be a toad.”
