And this is generosity:
a flash of color bright as flame
from every leaf on every tree.

The rain strings diamond filigree
from broken twig to window-frame
and this is generosity.

The maples spread their tapestry
of autumn hues, no two the same
on every leaf, on every tree.

And written in the sky, I see
a message rainbowed clouds proclaim:
that this is generosity

a gift to you, a gift to me
express-delivered. This gift came
from every leaf on every tree.

And all of this is ours for free
so, grateful heart, I praise the Name
for boundless generosity
in every leaf, on every tree.
