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

A heritage of vision was given to us all to smell the rose's fragrance

To hear the songbird's 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


Some must struggle just to breathe some have a golden spoon


And some will never leave the nest while some walk on the moon


And 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 live 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 we'll never be apart


It's in your dreams that you will know the seasons of the heart
