An Elemental Break (Water): "Calypso" by John Denver



In keeping with my musical Elemental Break post, I have added the videos and lyrics  for Water, Earth & Fire. Hope you like them!!

"Calypso" lyrics

To sail on a dream on a crystal clear ocean,
to ride on the crest of a wild raging storm
To work in the service of life and the living,
in search of the answers of questions unknown
To be part of the movement and part of the growing,
part of beginning to understand,

Aye Calypso the places you've been to,
the things that you've shown us,
the stories you tell
Aye Calypso, I sing to your spirit,
the men who have served you so long and so well

Like the dolphin who guides you, you bring us beside you
To light up the darkness and show us the way
For though we are strangers in your silent world
To live on the land we must learn from the sea
To be true as the tide and free as a wind swell
Joyful and loving in letting it be

Aye Calypso the places you've been to,
the things that you've shown us,
the stories you tell
Aye Calypso, I sing to your spirit,
the men who have served you so long and so well

  1. I'm loving your John Denver music! I like the way you have created a beautiful elemental connection to these lyrics. And the Calypso is almost an anthem, with its images, and soaring music and words! always loved that song! Thanks for the refreshing break and inspirational thoughts and sounds!!!
