My Beloved Land



This loving tribute is long overdue After a thousand poems or more Time to honour my country called Canada Spectacular from shore to shore The hometown charm of folks down east To the grandeur of the Rockies and beyond No wonder Canadians are proud as punch Sharing a unique common bond On that great expanse of pink on your map Just above the great USA Lives a gentle peace loving bunch of souls Sure hope we can keep it that way Not able to challenge the super powers Competing in the Olympic games Delighted just to share in the excitement Winning or losing, it's the same Happy to call Canada my home Where magnificent vistas abound My beloved country stands straight and tall It's beauty the world over is renowned © Jack Ellison 2013

    What a wonderful tribute to your homeland and the people. I've actually never been to Canada, but I'm sure you have captured it great.

    Dear Jack, Allow me to joining you in praising Canada, my adaptive beloved country. As I had said to the Canadian ambassador, paraphrasing Alexander the great, To Greece I owe my being but to Canada I owe my wellbeing! I am Canadian since 1976, My daughter, a writer, lives there as my sister and my nieces and tenths of friends. My love for Canada and my gratitude is second to none! I love this country and its people plus what it stands for! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to thank Canada.

    Applause... Very enjoyable... YAY... What does that mean any way? I wish I could see Canada... My sons girlfriend's family came from Canada. They live just below the border, now. She' the girlfriend I'd pick for him... I hope it works out... Good poem.

    Very wonderfully done Jack. Proud to have a best friend named Gloria from Canada. She currently lives in the states near me, but still goes HOME a few times a year
