Di Skal Level


Han Skal Leve, the Danish Honor song, is located toward the back of CPC’s 60th reunion anthology. According to the introductory paragraph in the anthology, it’s an honor song, which literally translated means “he shall live splendidly.” However, for a woman one should sing “Hun Skal Leve” (she shall live splendidly). When more than one person is being honored, one should sing “Di Skal Leve” (they shall live splendidly). In all cases, it is a wish rather than a prophecy.


At CPC, we normally sing Di Skal Leve as a farewell and to honor those who are leaving camp. So far, I haven’t been able to find a youtube video of Di Sal Leve. Perhaps Circle Piners should make one!

Passing Through
by Joan Baez, Leonard Cohen, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, & Buffy Sainte Marie
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WxG5NvDzHrQ


About 1:40 minutes into this, Joan Baez does a great imitation of Bob Dylan.

Also, I suspect this song was written near the end of WWII and before the start of the cold war. I say this because one verse has FDR expressing the hope that “one world will come out of world war 2.” Nice thought, but obviously that didn’t happen.
