With Apologies to the Teacher

by allisonkujiraoka

May I be so bold as to submit

a few additions to your list.

It occurred to me

that there may also be

a time to empty and a time to fill,

a time to fall sick and a time to be well,

a time to incite and a time to quell.

A time to ebb and a time to flow,

a time to shrink and a time to grow,

a time to befriend and a time to let go.

A time to nourish and a time to withhold,

a time to step back and a time to be bold,

a time to ignite and a time to grow cold.
