A weight off my head

An embellished version of Henry Purcell sits quietly in the corner of a London park

Calypso captured?

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
