Time to Plant ~ Time to Pluck

Time to Heal ~ Time to Wound

Time to Build ~ Time to Demolish

Time to Mourn ~ Time to Dance

Time to Embrace ~ Time to Shun

Time to Keep ~ Time to Discard

Time to Rend ~ Time to Mend

Time to Speak ~ Time for Silence

Time to Love ~ Time to Hate



Thanks for visiting ~ comments please ~ Love BRIAN XOX


There is a Season for everything and a Time for

everything on Earth and in Heaven. We should

not question the timing but rejoice in and reflect

on the TIME we have had TOGETHER. I've been

to several Funerals this Year (Ages 101 ~ 85 ~

42 ~ 30 ~ 18) but when I have given the eulogy

I have stressed that each was A COMPLETE LIFE

A Time to Live and a Time to Die. So let us Live

our Lives to the FULL and endeavour to leave

Precious Memories that our Loved Ones might

Rejoice for the Life that Was ~ and not Mourn

for the Life that Might have been ~ AMEN


The poem is based on ECCLESIASTES chapter 3.

          A fine write Brian. Big ben don't look like this now. it's all being refurbished. Saw it in person a couple of weeks ago.
          Oh - a time to sing; unfortunately it's me singing, but that can't be helped! How they look forward to 'a time not to sing!' lol.

              Oohh, comfort me in me swoons
              Through golden days of sun and nights of silvery moons
              Cos there's no remedy, it's just too 'hot'
              (Not just the weather. lol)
              From all these swoony poems, such a lot!

              And a time to reply on MPS - half time during the Belgium England game.

              • BRIAN & ANGELA

                FULL TIME BELGIUM 2 ENGLAND NIL ~ No bronze medal for the ENGLAND YOUTH TEAM ~ BUT put it into perspective ~ The relative success of ENGLAND YOUTH ! 32 Teams started out and at the end of the E v B Game against all odds ENGLAND ~ due to good Team Spirit and a Excellent Manager & Captain ~ they came FOURTH ~ awesome ! If that sounds awesome consider the BIGGER PICTURE ! There are about 200 different COUNTRIES in the World and everyone has a FOOTY TEAM and each of those TEAMS wanted to win the CUPPA DEL MUNDO in Moscow on Sunday. Those 200 by Fair means or Foul were whittled down to 31 and as host ~ RUSSIA played the JOKER ! So in effect out of 200 Teams ~ eligible to play in RUSSIA ~ The England Youth came FOURTH ~ AMEN ! They should get invited to BUCK HOUSE for tea with TRUMP ~ sorry for tea with the QUEEN and all given OBE's ~ OBVIOUSLY BEST ENGLAND ! Thanks for your comment ~ BRIAN ~ Still proud to be ENGLISH !
