Signature Sequence Of Leonard Cohen Lissadell House Concert

Leonard Cohen closed the first set of the July 31, 2010 Lissadell House concert by  quoting the opening lines from  “In Memory Of Eva Gore-Booth And Con Markiewicz” by William Butler Yeats –

The light of evening, Lissadell,
Great windows open to the south,
Two girls in silk kimonos, both
Beautiful, one a gazelle.
