To every thing there is a season……

This song has been playing in my head a lot the last week. I thought I’d post it here just for kicks:

"Turn, Turn, Turn"

Written by "Pete Seeger"

To every thing, 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 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 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 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 to 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

Most of the lyrics in this song are from the Bible, the third chapter of Ecclesiastes. King Solomon wrote pretty good lyrics, huh?

I’ve been thinking about this passage in the Bible after my parakeet Miss Piggy died (previous blog entry). Beady, her widowed mate, is adapting to being single. Ziggy, a female parakeet, has been making eyes at Beady. Ziggy has never had a special friend among the other parakeets in all the years I’ve had her. But, now that Beady is available, she keeps standing next to him. It’s really cute! It looks like he might be interested eventually.
