In Sun and Shade: A Book of Verse

by Frederick George Scott


 

O CANADA


 

O CANADA, my country, and my love!
O Canada, with cloudless skies above!
Where’er I roam, where’er my home,
    My heart goes back to thee,—
Thy lakes and streams, thy boundless dreams
5
    Thy rivers running free.
O Canada, O Canada!
God pour His blessings on thee from above.
O Canada, my country and my love!

Nieppe, 1915.
