I ran across this poem today and it made me think of the incredible leadership partnerships that exist between Canada and America. It is one of the blessings of this LIFE business that brings hope to both our nations, and the encouragement brings hope to every family.
Give me your hand across the line,
We'll face towards the sea,
You wear your crown of silver stars,
My maple leaf for me.
Fair heritage is this fair land,
Our flags wave o'er the whole,
Yours from the line to Rio's stream,
And mine from line to pole.
Within our bounds no tyrant lives,
Our flags wave proud and free,
O'er you the bars and silver stars,
The red-white pales o'er me.
For that my hand across the line
And strong the grip will be;
We'll sing "America" for you,
"O Canada" for me.
Here's to leadership and liberty, and the spread of freedom!
