Two days before the moon was round
The muffled world of dolphin sound

You learned of all of life's ancient rhymes
And brought you forth into these times
So taste the air of your new world
It knows the winds and sails unfurled

We met you first in your father's songs
It's in this place you now belong
I know you know of all these things
For you were born on silver wings

The songs you learned in dolphin lair
And teach us how their grace to share
