John Denver's Words

Two days before the moon was round
You felt the urge of sun s light beams
The muffled world of dolphin sounds
Slipped out and back, into your dreams

For nine full months that passed before
You learned of all of life's ancient rhymes
Then mother sensed a far-ther shore
And brought you forth in-to these times

So taste the air of your new world
And gently guide us to your mind
It knows the winds and sails unfurled
And holds to heart the dol-phin kind


Welcome precious earthmade child
We met you first in your fa-ther's songs
And mother's smile and waters wild

It's in this place you now be-long

I know you know of all these things
And feel the faith of a dolphin's sigh
For you were born on silver wings
To taste the high blown crys-tal sky

So sing one day to all of us
The songs you learned in dol-phin lair
Giving home to life as all we must
And teach us how their grace to share

John Denver

Original Post
Thank you Sue.

John Denver was quite the poet.

Dolphins nurse their young. They love to touch. They are very talkative.

From John Denver's Ancient Rhymes
A Dolphin Lullaby

To John dolphins were not just intelligent mammals, but a bit magical-our evolutionary cousin of the sea.

Thank you Sue for the post.

Music makes pictures and often tells stories,
All of it magic and all of it true.

And all of the pictures and all of the stories,
And all of the magic, the music is you.

John Denver
