While flipping through the guide on TV tonight I came across a 1995 John Denver Wildlife Benefit Concert on our local PBS station. Wow! This man could not only sing, but the words he wrote could touch my very soul. To me he was more than just your average songwriter...John was a Poet. And as I sat listening I was taken back in time. Man...did the melancholies set in. Such beauty in his words..."It's 5 o'clock this morning and the sun is on the rise. There's frosting on the windowpane and sorrow in your eyes. The stars are fading quietly, the night is nearly gone. And so you turn away from me and tears begin to come. And it's goodbye again."
Sadly, he passed away just 2 years after this performance..but his music is as poignant today as it was in the beginning.
Love to all!
