This poem picks up on a theme which runs through much of my work; the affection for this great land, Canada, in which we are so priveleged to call our home.

I  Canada

 

 

I speak of elevated things

Of music and the mind refined

Interviews with kooks and kings

Treasures in bright ribbons I daily find.

 

Oh yes I speak in voices

From Kootenay and Moosenee

Rugged simple people

The vastness of our symphony.

 

I lift the vision touch the heart

Barbara Frum gave us our start

Max Ferguson, The Morning Show

Defined the height I daily go.

 

I sing the Canada I know

I broadcast the country that I be

I sound the tones a cut above

I Canada, the CBC.
