A Poem For Canada
Oh, Grand and Regal Lady!
Let down your stream of golden braided hair ...
Extend your soft white hands in greeting ...
Salute the cool, inviting air.
A robe of forest green adorns you
And pearly lakes are fitted in your crown,
With threads of winding, silvery rivers
That run along your snowy, winter gown.
The young, the homeless and the hopeful
Are heartened by your lush serenity,
And those who come to seek your fortunes
Shall find a smile that spreads from sea to sea
Oh, Kind and Noble Lady!
I bow before the shield of your embrace.
Let no man test your faith and gentle judgment,
And may your reign be long and filled with grace.
