Two days before the moon was round You felt the urge of sun’s 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 life’s 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 father’s songs And mother’s smile and waters wild It’s in this place you now belong
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 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
