Common Canadian

Common Loon we love the most Can be seen from coast to coast Across this land gliding on lakes All across Canada the route it takes Nesting on islands surrounded by sea This bird Canadian easy to see Floats so easily dives for fish Just as common our Friday dish A hoot and yodel is its holler Permanent mark Canadian dollar Sleek pointed beak head black as kettle Hardly seen amongst the nettle Around its neck color green black Extending wings or tucked in back Whichever way Canadian beauty Protecting this bird it is our duty Reason why this national treasure No other bird can even measure Common Loon across this land Without doubt a Canadian brand Think Canadian anytime soon Can't be done without the Loon Maple leaf loved in a song Common Loon Canadian strong

Independence Day

From the nest of globalization
Like a dove filled with aspiration
Let citizens spread their wings
And fly out into the world.

Where fields are filled with grains
Dams are filled with water
And cities never sleep
While children take nap.

Carrying the mountains of cash and books
Which are digitized in its beaks
Moving the economy forward
By sharing where required.

America's Bird

America’s Bird

In all honesty, the extent of my turkey knowledge begins and ends with their unique sound and their great taste.
Come Thanksgiving and Christmas, turkey fragrance fills the house and nothing goes to waste.

I know that the dove has symbolic meaning, one being that of the Holy Spirit.
I also understand that the dove must be a gentle one, spoken of as being harmless.
No one takes kindness to being called a turkey; and a dove-like defense is rather limited.

But the eagle is really my kind of bird, and he would certainly be my first choice.
The eagle has the eye to target and lay hold of his prey, and quickly return to the heights.
The eagle knows how to repair and rebuild himself, renewing his strength for longevity.
He knows the ways of the wind and becomes its partner, as he mounts up his wings to sour.

No, I think that turkeys are birds of choice for smokers, ovens, and tables of holiday feasts.
I wish our world could be as harmless as doves, and fly about feeding its hungry and caring for its young.
But our world chooses not to be at peace, and we fall short at feeding, loving, and caring for the needy.

Yes, give me the eagle who reaches for the high places;
Who observes and listens, communicating with the winds.
He's hi-tech, working not hard, but smart, by spreading his wings
He does not seek to change, but he works 'with the wind' and soars.
He’s aware of the winds of change and utilizes divine resources.
I choose the eagle for America, and may we forever mount up higher.
May we keep flying high, soaring above and beyond, until our days are done.
