GENEROSITY: A Dan Direach of Fhlaithiúlacht

Give freely and grow richer
Or a pauper conservant
Subsume this great arcane truth
To become a knight savant

In victory, give glory
To your lord with reverence
To your valiant warriors
Give with great benevolence

As touching your courtly love
Meditate on this lection
Try, as you may, to surpass
Your lady’s great affection

Take care for “the least of these”
and grant the humble favor
Freely give, as giving to
Our Christ, Our Lord, Our Savior

All you pour out flows back when
Poured from this golden pitcher
Not from excess- From your want
Give freely and grow richer
