O Canada In Birthday Poetry

-->

maple leaf yellowO Canada!

A bright red

cardinal sings

Happy Birthday

In morning mist.

 

Our home and native land

A multicultural mosaic.

Offers refuge.

Kindles hope.

Within and without.

 

True patriot love in all thy sons

(and daughters)

Command

We do love you

O Canada.

 

With glowing hearts

We reach out.

Beyond borders.

North, south, east, west,

In worldwide community.

 

We see thee rise

And sometimes fall,

A country challenged.

Nations disparate

In changing seasons.

 

The true north

Cold as ice

And twice as nice,

in summer than

in winter.

 

Strong and free

As we wish.

To be

together

in prosperity.

 

From far and wide

We are unbound

by shining seas

or 50 states

in a melting pot.

 

O Canada

A bright red

maple leaf waves

Happy Birthday

in blue skies.

 

We stand on guard

and lower it sometimes,

lest fear occupy

Too great a space

In our time.

 

For thee

For peace.

For this earth.

For humanity.

In solidarity.

 

god keep our land

Those within it.

And without it.

Safe, not sorry,

in security.

 

Glorious and free

From racism

sexism, consumerism,

and other isms that might

in prison us.

 

O Canada!

Be all we can be.

Now.

Today, and

in perpetuity.
