Leonard Cohen's Old Ideas Tour, Amsterdam 2012....Trinidad Sonnet

Last night, music made me feel young again
at Leonard Cohen's Old Ideas world tour.
Musicians, singers and audience attained
a special state of shared and warm delight;
only smiling faces, shining and pure,
sharing sweet memories, this special night.
My heart was uplifted, right from the start,
people were swaying, along with the band;
of the air thus created, all took part.
A feeling of oneness slowly spread out -
he sang song after song all live, not canned.
A master of ballads he is, no doubt!
Last night, music made me feel young again,
my heart was uplifted, right from the start.
