My Ode To Music

Updated on April 4, 2014

Leonard Cohen~Hallelujah

My Ode to Music

Music folds me in its simple arms

Hypnotizes me with all its charms

LIke waves of gold on an ocean floor..

Keeps me always longing for more

It's poetic, sexy, romantic, hypnotic haze

Fills me up and I feel all ablaze

Oh! Hit me with notes, tremble, words..

Help me sing aloud though I know no chords

LIGHT MY FIRE

HIT ME WITH YOUR BEST SHOT

KISS ME, THRILL ME, LOVE ME, KILL ME

Just don't stop

or cease your melody

Dedicated to Leonard Cohen~"Halleluiah"!

I love music of all kinds. Music inspires me, especially the kind that brings back good memories or is tied to people I love. For example, my father before he passed used to watch the PBS tv channel and performers such as Leonard Cohen would be on. These times I cherished with my dad. When I was eight he and I watched "Oklahoma", "West Side Story", and "Showboat" in the kitchen together at night. This was one on one quality time with just me and him, that I'm not sure if my siblings remember!

Sometimes also, when people point out great talents such as Sara Brightman, Andrea Bochelli, and Josh Groban I just have to listen and I usually end up liking it as well!

      I really dig that you like Leonard, refering to him as,a musician because 'he is a bit of everything'. What a cool description. Cool hub, music and images!

      Glad to see you writing today! ;~)

      You're so right, schoolgirl - those older musicals were the BEST! West Side Story, Showboat and Singing in the Rain are three of my all-time favorites that I can watch and listen to again and again. Thanks for reminding me.

      There's something about Leonard Cohen (when I initially got over his age! LOL) He is I think charismatic and you just like his music. Thanks!

      I was growing up and very easily 'wowed' by Leonard Cohen. His style, voice and mood is very unique. Always loved him; still do. Great article!

      Lucky Cats! Thanks for stopping by! (I love that name Lucky Cats :)

      Yes, Leonard, though I haven't heard too many of his other songs, I guess he just strikes you (or you hate him one or the other) right away. I learned he is also other things, writer, poet I think, and long beloved in Canada his home country. thanks

      ps My brother and father were listening to Leonard on tv (PBS) one day when I first saw him sing...My dad has good taste! :-)
