Engravings On Unwritten Snow / Three
For Leonard Cohen

He is holding her tight
In his heart of light
Holy atoms of broken divinity
Nowhere in sight
He is holding her tight
In his heart of light
Powdery stillness
On his elbow of sorrow
Ephemeral witness
Of His late forgiveness
He is holding her
MORE AND MORE TIGHT
In his heart of light
Birds are falling asleep
In their flight
Immaculate shadows
Of doubt
