Leonard Cohen: You’re Our Man/Poets

Hello Poets,

Sorry for being tardy. Doing layout for the book on Microsoft Word has been a challenge, but I ain’t complaining. The 75 poets selected come primarily from Leonard’s home town, Montreal. Others come from across Canada, the U.S.A., the United Kingdom/England, Belgium, Australia, South Africa, Portugal, Israel, Cyprus, France, and I am sure I am forgetting one or two other countries. But you’ve excused my errors before, and I hope you will once(or twice) more.  Merci to all who submitted!!  Here are the selected poets with poem titles:
