    I have all his books of poetry and two or three albums. Yes, he could be miserable but beautifully and enigmatically so. I always find something new in his works.

    And I get angry when cover versions chew up and augment Hallelujah :mrgreen:

    Felt very sad when I heard of his death. Lovely, lovely man. I have many albums and I've been playing them this weekend.
