Canada as Sonnet 18

Amber Todd


Shall I compare Canada to Maple Syrup?

Thou art more sweet and more pure:

Rough Americans do plead to try it one day,

And its the first thing they ask for once they leave the states:

Sometimes too kind the people are,

And often do they worry about us with our strange ways,

And every now and then do Canada dries our eyes,

By chance, for our nature does not taste so sweet:

But thy eternal sweetness is bitter and false,

Nor lose taste of the kindness thats here,

Nor can we bring the bitterness to the sweet,

When in Canada you learn to be of honey

So long as men can taste, and ears can hear,

So long lives Canada, and this gives sugar to thee.
