Country Acrostic

Canada the home of my birth
open sky from sea to shining sea
unbelievable beauty captivates my heart
no other place I would rather live
teaming with wildlife trees and lakes
rising rocky mountains in the west
yesterday, today and tomorrow a part of me



For Andrea's Acroustic Seven Contest

    A very nicely written acrostic, Richard! Clearly you have great pride in your country, as we all should! I reside in Wisconsin, so this sounds a lot like a description of where I live. Well done, and I wish you good luck in the contest!...Thank you for the nice comments. I really appreciate it!

    Beautiful patriotic expression, through out this wonderful poem. I've only been to Toronto, this yr actually to visit my cousins. I thought it was beautiful, I want to really explore more. Landscapes & different areas. I had a lovely trip there & can't wit to visit again. The malls where outstanding, lol not that I'm a big shopper but honestly a beautiful place, for sure:0)

    To bad you didn't get to see some of the more natural surroundings. Toronto is a great city though.

    Oh Canada...our home and native land....True patriot love....in all thy sons' command...Well, my SIS-in-law...with parents living in Kelowna...would LOVE this.

    I'd love to see Banff one day! I read about it in these Christian novels by Janette Oak about the Canadian Mounties....Must be breathtaking....
