A Toast To Canada


Canada, land of the rocky mountain,
The Niagara Falls, the Maple Leafs,
The land with the longest street in the world,
You, who are amongst the giant of nations, lies
Quietly, doing wonders for humanity,
A toast of love, of affection, give

You, home to adventurous pioneers
In technology, an industrious giant,
In a world of belwilderment
You stand respected and strong
You, a mecca of hope, proud and admired

Leaders come, leaders go,
Yet you continue to shine in
Peace, faith, love and understanding
Rest secure, you are a bright shining star

Canada, you a nation of multinationals,
Multiracial, and multicutural people
Sparkling from region to region
To you a toast, give,
You, a great nation, alive

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
