When Leaves Turn
 

When leaves turn,
not when green
falls to red
or yellow
or even brown,
but when green
reaches up
and out
and even for--
the sun's the thing
the light
the life.

It's in the turning,
though not once
or twice
or every while,
but again
and again
and every day--
the sun's the thing
the light
the life.

Now it's your turn,
not thoughtless
in the reaching
or blind
to the cause,
but in faith
each day
being filled
to overflowing,
'till the rings
of growth show--
the Son's the thing
the light
the life.
