“All men will be sailors then” – Farewell to Leonard Cohen

Great Canadian poet Leonard Cohen has become a sailor as he has drowned into the unfathomable waters of eternal sleep – only he knows if he has now seen Jesus… – HT

And Jesus was a sailor when he walked upon the water

And he spent a long time watching from his lonely wooden tower

And when he knew for certain only drowning men could see him

He said “All men will be sailors then until the sea shall free them”

Le grand poète montréalais Leornard Cohen est devenu marin en sombrant dans les profondeurs insondables de la mort — lui seul pourrait dire s’il a maintenant aperçu Jésus… – HT

Et Jésus était un marin quand il marcha sur l’eau

Et il fut un long moment à observer du haut de sa tour en bois solitaire

Et quand il eût la certitude que seuls les hommes sur le point de se noyer pouvaient le voir

Il dit, « Tous les hommes seront donc marins jusqu’à ce que la mer les libère »

— Leonard Cohen, “Suzanne“, © Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC — Traduction adaptée par Henri Thibodeau | Henri’s Web Space

    He was an early victim of MKULTRA program, and became a product of the Tavistock Institute.
    I love his songs though, and it is hard to say where the limit is between good and evil.
