For Anne

With Annie gone,
whose eyes to compare
with the morning sun?

Not that Idid compare,
But I do compare
Now that she's gone.

I love short poems. One of my favorites is WC Williams This is Just to Say. This poem is its mirror, except it deals with emotions and not a physical sensation like taste - so much harder, deeper, insightful subject matter, so much harder to get it RIGHT. This poem is a joy despite its quality of longing.
A superb tribute paid to the departed love.
One of my most favourite singers/songwriters. So much feelings into his lyrics and songs.
Such a sentimental poem.... Superb! ! ! Thanks for posting....
Such a nice offering to make ones dearest one immoral! Cohen not a name but a depth to dip silently. Beautiful.
