We posted this last year and reading it again we still love it, so have decided to repost this year!
This piece is by my dad – written 4 years ago in celebration of Canada Day. He’s such a creative guy and a lovin spirit… so hope you enjoy
A Toast To Canada
Here’s to Canada, land of the free;
Daily life starts with coffee or tea
In winter we freeze; in summer we cook;
In April, the tax man throws us the book.
September is gorgeous, bug season has passed;
Lake water’s still warm and the sail’s up the mast.
For tennis and golf our weather’s divine;
On political guff, our friends still opine.
Here’s to Canada where discussion’s our style;
Guns and violence are not worth our while.
We argue, we listen, our points do come clear;
And mostly its done with mighty good cheer.
Here’s to Canada, our land that we praise;
May peace be among us for the rest of our days.
Our nation’s dynmaic, our people real smart;
Raise a glass to Canada, a land that has heart.
thanks dad for being canadian
i’m so grateful to live in this land of Canada.
