How I long to visit Niagara Falls;
the beauty of its majesty calls...

I hear the Canadian geese overhead fly;
stretching across a deep purple sky...

The vast country expounds;
A Mari Usque Ad Mare
its rich history abounds...
"From Sea to Sea"

O Canada,My Canada...

How I yearn to see;
the grace of your beauty.

From Vancouver's brilliant lights;
to Quebec's starry nights...

From the Pacific;
to the Atlantic...

The vast country expounds;
A Mari Usque Ad Mare
its rich history abounds...
"From Sea to Sea"


O Canada,My Canada...

Maple leaves;
glorious trees...

Canadian Rockies;
Canadian hockey...

The Common Loon;
A Harvest Moon...

The vast country expounds;
A Mari Usque Ad Mare
its rich history abounds...
"From Sea to Sea"

O Canada, My Canada...

The vast country expounds;
A Mari Usque Ad Mare
its rich history abounds...
"From Sea to Sea"

God Save the Queen
O Canada,My Canada...

I loved it!

This would make a great National Anthem for Canada. I miss the traditional type of poetry with it's rhythm and flow, but these words give the sentiment of a true patriot - and tells us of a beautiful country. Very nice.

You capture a lot about this vast country in a very few words! I especially like the refrain.

Hi Debra - congratulation on 6th place - God has given you an amazing gift and insight. I'm just now learning to appreciate poetry - I really like (this one) - yours. Keep your pen writing - look forward to reading more of your articles. I especially like 'A mari usque ad mare'
Thank you - Lynn
