John Denver Lyrics

Ancient Rhymes Lyrics

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
