SINCE WE GREW UNDER HIS SONGS
His novels and his poems/seeing him in concert
enlarged each of us as we learned emotions as a dance and song
between consenting partners.Worlds of loners loved him more
as he embraced his long road round the globe,stopping in
to sing his grasshopper song to all the ants.We came to listen
as he spoke his deep.We were students .He would willingly teach
without anything other than his Muse and darker dreams to amuse us with.
Miss you already.Leonard.Your last Cd will rise to top of our attention box.
Your life was given bravely.We will quote you now,selectively.
Your final wish was generous."You want it darker"
So you gave it to us.Your Final act EXIT,darkly..into silence
