Giving Is a Placid Kind of River

Music: Fantasia 5.
By Giovanni Bassano.
Sequenced by Curtis Clark at The Internet Renaissance Band

Giving is a placid kind of river
In which one bathes to exercise the heart.
Underneath the smile of the giver
Lies deep an unsuspected sunken treasure
In channels far too changeable to chart.
