POETS FOR TODAY

The last one, one can't deny he's a good poet

Merci MAAT! There is so much good writing out there that never gets read, let's make a difference on this thread! I think that we can excuse some of our allies for skipping town before the storm: FOR TODAY! It would be impossible not to include Leonard Cohen, for example: (sorry for the ads w the clips) Do a search, this man was a beacon onto the music scene as a writer:


"Dance Me To The End Of Love"

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic 'til I'm gathered safely in
Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Oh let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone
Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon
Show me slowly what I only know the limits of
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the wedding now, dance me on and on
Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long
We're both of us beneath our love, we're both of us above
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the children who are asking to be born
Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn
Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic till I'm gathered safely in
Touch me with your naked hand, touch me with your glove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love -

A YOUNG-ISH BRITISH POET whose work I truly enjoy: SCROOBIUS PIP: (RAP and foul language sometimes) Dominic, our son turned me on to this like 15 years ago and the lad has sky rocketed and reached a huge audience with some pretty sensible poetry (not these 2 necessarily - just in a hurry) FABULOUS VIDEO CLIPS CREATED WITH NEARLY NO BUDGET - this is the trend for the future: do everything with your own hands and NO budgets!!! Creativity at it's best!



Personally I thought this one was OFF, but hey, we all have bad days:
