Random Acts of Poetry: O Canada

AVRD Random Acts of Poetry

Just recently, yours truly took a trip to the Great White North. Sadly, I did not find the Rick Moranis Statue or the World’s Largest Bottle of Maple Syrup, but I did have some wonderful experiences touring around Montreal and the capital city of Ottawa.

Today, a poetic tribute to the land north of the United States.

Canada, in haiku

True North, strong and free
The air is extremely cold
And they use metric

A friendly people
Most provinces speak English
Quebec? Not really

Parliament is grand
The Maple Leaf soars above
And there’s the Queen’s throne
