Canada Day Eh

Why is Canada so very special to me There are ever so many reasons It's the land of my birth, the place I call home A country blessed with four seasons Winter in Canada with it's blanket of snow Unmatched for beauty and splendour The cold clean air as we take a deep breath The thrill of outdoor adventures As we curl up in front of a cozy warm fire Overwhelmed by a magical feeling We sense the sweet glow of love and devotion Which sends our dear hearts a-reeling Then spring arrives with a feeling of renewal After winter’s long cozy nap The birds sing out loudly, spring has arrived No longer burdened by wooly hats The jolly old sun seems so much warmer now Blossoms soon raise their wee heads Bumble bees buzz from flower to flower Sipping nectar from each colourful bed Then summer arrives, the sweetest time of the year The hillsides are alive and in bloom Sweet romance is foremost on everyone's mind All the world's lovers are in tune Those warm summer days are over too soon August warns us of what's just ahead With nature's brilliant colourful explosion Of yellow, orange, crimson and red It's the end of a cycle and the start of a new one This wonderful country we live in How fortunate we are to call ourselves Canadians As a new cycle once more begins © Jack Ellison 2015

    Canadian Day... Bring out the candles on the Cakes. Dragon wants you to send him some of that cake. Your summers ARE way shorter than ours. At least Dragon would start less fires with all that snow on every thing... And his penguins are thinking about visiting this year...You said the right word... Snow... They're positively a fultter whith hearing that word... Happy Canada Day!
