On Canada- A Sonnet
Is it country or heaven, emblem or Dove
Flying skies of peace, prsperity and, love
A land of immigrants, sharing unique bonds
Of Castle, colour, creed, shedding mounds
Of predejuice, supremercy, pressing into  servise a total
Human welfare, education and absorption of global mortals
An abode of singularity in the Cosmos, a stage
Where actors play role with mirth, a cage
Of human limitations, leaving men nostalgic
For creature comforts; yearning for pursuits, logic
Coexistence of America and Niagra, English and the French
Linguistic hue, blows air of unity to entrench
Against hatred, poverty to make Canada a Utopia
Where univeralisty reigns, homely music plays sans phobia.
