Children Of The Universe - John Denver (約翰·丹佛)

A heritage of vision


Was given to us all


To smell the roses fragrance


To hear the songbirds call


To watch the distant moonlight fill

The coming of the tides


To understand that life is more

Than always choosing sides


And some have seen what can be seen

Of sailing ships and kings


And some are given feet of clay


And some are given wings


And some must struggle just to breathe


Some have a golden spoon


And some will never leave the nest


While some walk on the moon


Don't you know the life that lives

Within the silent hills


Is just as rich and beautiful


And just as unfulfilled


As man with all his intellect


His reason and his choice


Oh who's to say the nightingale


Has any less a voice


The silver dolphins twist and dance

And sing to one another


The cosmic ocean knows no bounds


For all that lives are brothers


The whippoorwill the grizzly bear


The elephant the whale


All children of the universe


All weavers of the tale


So palomino lie back down

And dream yourself to sleep


The hawk flies with the morning dove


The lion with the sheep


As far away as you may go


Well never be apart


It's in your dreams that you will know

The seasons of the heart
