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 wisphers 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

Memíries of the days gone by
engraved into my soul
return to you I will some day
itís 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

I liked this very much Munda. I have seen Canada and everything your poem described was just as beautiful when I saw it.I got to take another trip by reading the poem.

Gosh Munda....you have captured everything I adore about this wonderful country I live in! We welcome you with open arms. I have never been to your country though I want to very badly. My parents were both born in the Netherlands. They return frequently but I have never been blest to travel there. I am first generation Canadian, my motherland being Holland.

Munda,
I love this as I have said before...beautifully done. One I could read over and over.

Munda: Most excellent... both my parents come from North of the border and some 37 years later my mom still carries her green card with those late 50's cateye glasses. I got lots of family in the Great White and have many fond memories of trips taken and summers spent. Thanks for sharing.
