GUEST,Gerry Toshi's verses to turn, turn, turn (5) RE: Toshi's verses to tuern, turn, tuern 13 Oct 19


Maybe it's these, that I found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?reload=9&v=q7pzic4mf7o
They were in a coment by Lynne Hoffman.

And with these 5 'new' verses Pete Seeger’s wife, Toshi, wrote in 1954 for their 6 and 8 yr old kids. First sung here in 2012, when Pete Seeger was 93 years young. An amazing human being who will stay in our hearts for a very, very long time.

A time for work, a time for play
A time for night, a time for day
A time to sleep, a time to wake
A time for candles on the cake.
...
A time to dress, a time to eat
A time to sit and rest your feet
A time to teach, a time to learn
A time for all to take their turn

A time to cry and make a fuss
A time to leave and catch the bus
A time for quiet, a time for talk
A time to run, a time to walk

A time to get, a time to give
A time to remember, a time to forgive
A time to hug, a time to kiss
A time to close your eyes and wish

A time for dirt, a time for soap
A time for tears, a time for hope
A time for fall, a time for spring
A time to hear the robins sing
