Ancient Rhymes Lyrics

Artist: John Denver
Album: John Denver Collection

This song appears on four albums, and was first released on The Flower That Shattered The Stone album, and has also been released on the Stonehaven Sunrise, The Gift You Are and The John Denver Collection - Sunshine On My Shoulder albums.

Two days before the moon was round
You felt the urge of suns light beams
The muffled world of dolphin sound
Slipped down and back into your dreams

For nine full months that passed before
You learned of all of lifes ancient rhymes
Then mother sensed a farther shore
And brought you forth into 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 dolphin kind

Welcome precious earthmade child
We met you first in your fathers songs
And mothers smile and waters wild
Its in this place you now belong

I know you know of all these things
And feel the faith of a dolphins sigh
For you were born on silver wings
To taste the high blown crystal sky

To sing one day to all of us
The songs you learned in dolphin lair
Giving hope to life as all we must
And teach us how their grace to share

Words and music by John Denver and Bob Samples
