Magpie 76


I’ll let Pete Seeger comment on this week’s Magpie prompt:

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)
There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)
And a time to every purpose, under Heaven

A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to laugh, a time to weep

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)
There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)
And a time to every purpose, under Heaven

A time to build up, a time to break down
A time to dance, a time to mourn
A time to cast away stones, a time to gather stones together

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)
There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)
And a time to every purpose, under Heaven

A time to gain, a time to lose
A time to rend, a time to sew
A time for love, a time for hate
A time for peace; I swear it's not too late.

Gotta love Pete Seeger, not to mention Ecclesiastes. This is one of those "I wish I'd thought of that" moments. Glad you did, however.

It has the ring of a song as it flows. I wonder what tune would be appropriate. Elvis' Jailhouse Rock?

Good; let's do some two-part harmony. :-)

What a perfect pairing. And how clever of you to have conjured this magic.

You have more confidence in my vocal technique than I have. :-)
