Home - on Canada Day

Home, a poem by Al Purdy  is a poetic rendition of Canada. 

Here is a fragment:

"Ontario is trees 
the kind that meet from both
sides of of the road
and make a continual whisper"

and the poem's ending:

" and now I dream of islands
in a spring of wild roses
and write another poem
in this enchanted country"
