For all in life there is a season

out of nowhere

awaits shaded,

visions, for those

with fairish perception,

purged of fakery and

symbolic falsehoods.

my chapters in

history tout no

shadows but my own

even my jaded version

a bronzed patina.

more comforting times

than present express

stanzas of times in

seasons –

times to embrace

times for refrain

times to purpose

peace as we stand

on the edge of time

turn, turn, turn

Turn! Turn! Turn!

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

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

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

A time of love, a time of hate
A time of war, a time of peace
A time you may embrace, a time to refrain from embracing

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

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

Written by Pete Seeger in the late 1950s and first recorded in 1959)

The Bryds version was released on October 1, 1965

  1. I absolutely love this song! I was 5 years young in 65′ but recall the song later in the 60s with family in northern lower Michigan. Sweet memories. Thanks for this. ❤️

      1. One thing I’ve learned is to say ‘no’ when I don’t want to do something. If someone asks would you like to… ? No should be an accepted answer too. Though more often than not the person asking is upset that you won’t do their bequest/request.
