I Almost Went to Bed

We present this work in honor of the 5th anniversary of the poet’s death.

11-07 Cohen
Leonard Cohen
Canadian
1934 – 2016

I almost went to bed
without remembering
the four white violets
I put in the button-hole
of your green sweater

and how I kissed you then
and you kissed me
shy as though I’d
never been your lover
