A Poem for July 1st

White and red

Three sections like a storm

A leaf in the center, led

Canada to form.

So today we celebrate 

And remember back those years

For the future will await

Triumphs, falls, and tears.

And as we think to the beginning

We remember who we are

Stand true, believe, hold fast, while grinning

Whether near or far.

We are together here

To continue living in unity

Differences aside, we’re

In one community.

As we see the flags around

And be glad for this day

Be ready to make a joyful sound

Even if the storm is gray.
