Donovan on Playing at the Hall of Fame

April 16, 2012 | By Eric Helton

Donovan closed out his performance at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with a special version of his hit “Season of the Witch” with John Mellencamp, which he said afterward was “a great joy.” “I feel like something has been fulfilled on stage tonight which sums up my contribution to this extraordinary world of music,” the singer told Rolling Stone.

Acceptance Poem

“From my wandering days on lonely sands
where I sang my song to the moon and stars
To the world’s great stage , honoured am I
to sing my song to a million fans

Always my wish to be of service
to ease emotion deep in the heart
Always your poet , a shaman am I
to lead us all to the realm within

Yet I was branded for my beauty
yet protected by my art
Many plundered me for booty
only one did steal my heart

How she keeps it in her casket
still remains a mystery
Like the moonrise in a sunset
like the silence of the sea

Thank you for this bright green laurel
resting now upon my brow
Thank you Goddess , thank you Muses
thank you … Fellow Artists All”
