You have the Lovers

This is Leonard Cohen reading aloud my favourite poem of his.
I found his book of poems, The Spice-Box of Earth in a little vintage shop in Portland, and would carry it around with me in my purse to read on occasion, on the bus, at cafes, and I always came back to this poem. I would read it relentlessly; as though someone was trying to tell me something.

Close your eyes while you listen.
