"In the Land
of the Maple Leaf!"
This Land CANADA shall become our new homeland,
without ever alienating our own country of birth!
For our children who were born here,
they are keeping our future in their hands.
Children will have to find their own ways in life,
with our help, and their dreams in their hearts and minds.
As they all have many
for their beautiful Canada is a Free Country!
The new offspring and our old roots
thrive very well in this very fertile Canadian soil!
As our elders keep hoping in prayer and in
that something good may become of their children.
many people are of different origins in this country,
they should tell their children about their own heritage
in the future!
Children shall avow themselves to their ancestors,
openly with pride, for that alone,
they do not ever have to be daring!
immigrants should honor and embrace their elders
with love and respect, wherever they came
and what they represented in their lives.
or as the cold northern winds are blowing...,
our own oak trees
will also stand here defiantly
and strong, against all elements of Nature!
this land of our children, CANADA and the Maple Leaf,
people of the world sought to
they were searching for Peace and
We all have finally found it
in this Canadian land,
one precious thought is left for our elderly parents...,
