A Sonnet for Canada
Oh, cold, cold land of Godís own hand
Where snow and ice abides the nigh
From rocky mountain tops and sand
And deep blue waters meet the sky
Where flight of feathers kneels to pray
And horns of nature blow no tune
To greet perfection of His day
Clearness of Heaven last of moon.
The dance of Angels on the rise
Soft hues of nature fill the air
And pleading brilliance rarely seen
The gifts of Godís majestic skies
Over grass-ed plains city fair
Oh, Canada, for God, and Queen.
The basic meter of all sonnets in English is iambic pentameter. An English or Italian sonnet is divided into two sections by two different groups of rhyming sounds. The first 8 lines is called the octave and the remaining 6 lines is called the sestet. American sonnets are often built with 15 lines with a similar rhyming scheme.
