Poem by Emily Pauline Johnson (1861-1913)  

AKA  Tekahionwake

1st of July was Canada Day...  Happy belated Canada Day!




Canada

 

    Crown of her, young Vancouver; crest of her, old Quebec;
    Atlantic and far Pacific sweeping her, keel to deck.
    North of her, ice and arctics; southward a rival's stealth;
    Aloft, her Empire's pennant; below, her nation's wealth.
    Daughter of men and markets, bearing within her hold,
    Appraised at highest value, cargoes of grain and gold.
