Our Lady of Solitude

©Leonard Cohen, released on Recent Songs (1979)

.

All summer long she touched me

She gathered in my soul

From many a thorn, from many thickets

Her fingers, like a weaver's

Quick and cool

.

And the light came from her body

And the night went through her grace

All summer long she touched me

And I knew her, I knew her

Face to face

.

And her dress was blue and silver

And her words were few and small

She is the vessel of the whole wide world

Mistress, oh mistress, of us all

.

Dear Lady; Queen of Solitude

I thank you with my heart

for keeping me so close to thee

while so many, oh so many, stood apart

.

And the light came from her body

And the night went through her grace

All summer long she touched me

I knew her, I knew her

Face to face

.
