This song my friend, please understand
is from my heart, about my land.
My country young and great and wide,
two might oceans on its side,
And looking north, when clear the nights,
it's marked by our Northern Lights.
Where love and energy I give
with pride and pleasure, here to live,
in peace, in Canada, my land.
Please keep it that way, not to end.
I wish that it shall always be,
the country that it is for me.
A favour though, I'd like to ask
should you be charged a certain task.
When spirit moves to greater heights
my destination Northern Lights;
Just gather stems of wheat and hay
no matter what some people say,
Some twigs of cedar, birch and willow;
I'd like these for my spirit's pillow.
Then intertwine them, make a wreath,
adorn it with a maple leaf;
Then place the same upon a hill
and know, my spirit is here still.
The final steps in the process included the addition of some thread stitched cedar boughs;
and of course some free motion quilting.
The process now being complete, here at long last is the end result.
I hope I did my inspiration justice. Oh yes and thank you Vicki for this "theme", I'm getting better at documenting the PROCESS!
