I’m thinking of Pete Seeger, who died yesterday at 94 after a full and active life of song and advocacy for peace.
This is one of Seeger’s songs, as sung by the Byrds (1965); it was my favorite song when I was 9 years old. I recognized it was from Ecclesiastes, and I loved the simple tune.
A time to be born, a time to die. Elegy & celebration.
