About the Poem

When I visited Canada for the fist time it was "love at fist sight." Every time I returned, it felt like a homecoming. A part of me is always there and I'm in a constant state of being torn between two lovers. Ah, sweet memories of days gone by and dreams of days yet to come.

Hi . I have travelled and lived in four countries. Canada is now my home and has been for many years. Your poem captures its beauty and greatness. Canada is a great country, filled with gentle people, once visited, never forgotten.

Canada

Canada, oh Canada
what hast thou done with me
whenever I do close my eyes
my heart is there with thee

Your mountains and great forests
of an infinity
Sequoias stand majestically
ancient serenity

What everlasting pleasure
lies in your scenery
the crumbling walls of what once was
beneath a Maple tree

Golden fields of waving grain
whisper a lullaby
the sunset slowly fades away
beyond your endless sky

Canada, oh Canada
what hast thou done with me
I feel thou whispers in my soul
I wish to be with thee

I spot a single red deer
scent danger in the breeze
the slightest noise will make her flee
among your mighty trees

I see your children playing
out on a frozen pond
at snowball fights and slapping pucks
a magic way beyond

Mem'ries of the days gone by
engraved into my soul
return to you I will some day
it's always been my goal

Canada, oh Canada
what hast thou done with me
thou temptress of my craving heart
I long to be with thee

Your poem was beautiful. I was born and raised in Canada, and am proud to be Canadian. When I walk in my neighbourhood, I am reminded of the simplistic beauty that is my country. Your poem enhanced Canada's natural beauty even further. Thank you for honouring my country.
