I want to dedicate this to all who are from Nova Scotia, all who have adopted Nova Scotia as their home like my Newfoundland cousins (Rose, Frank and Billly), all those who have visited and those who have yet to have that pleasure...this is my Nova Scotia.


 

 

 

 

Nova Scotia

 

 

(New Scotland)

 

Aye, tis the white flag crossed with blue

With It’s centre a lion brave and free

Proudly waving high on every masthead

With the wind blowing inland from the sea

 

While the distinct Nova Scotia tartan

Swirls round the bag pipers knees

While the Bluenose sails the waters

Billowed sails catch an Atlantic’s breeze

 

A Nova Scotia Duck Troller strolls the beach

With his master on a driftwood lover’s dream

Where the legends of Mi’kmaq’s Glooscap echo

and tears are still shed for the lost Evangeline

 

The Forts of the Citadel, Louisbourg, and Annnapolis

Still greet all who seek witness to our history

While our people in the towns and villages

Make Visitors welcome to the way of life you see

 

So come home to Nova Scotia

For I know you will love it like I do

This little piece of paradise once called New Scotland

Can't you hear it calling out to you…

Thank you for the reboot almost forgot!

Lovely descriptions and imagery, would love to visit again someday. Have visited Niagara Falls, Christmas in the Gardens and amusement park there.
In-laws live near the border so I am sure to have the opportunity for re-visit. However it was instant love, ahhh enjoyed the pristine thoughts of Canada.

Thanks,
Gwendolyn

I've been to Canada, but not Nova Scotia. Sure would love to return to Canada and maybe have a chance to go to Nova Scotia; would also love to see Montreal, Vancouver, Nunavut, or Toronto! :) Wonderful tribute to your beloved home, Fee; well done! BRAVO!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D

Yes I can. It is a sad thing for me to admit that I haven't been to Nova Scotia since I was a teenager. I loved its rocky shores and the green, green grasses and stone work. I have a friend for this beautiful paradise, Peggy's Cove, and she visits every year. Lucky her.
This poem is so beautiful. thank you and blessings, J'nia

Been in Canada and once drove from Edmonton via Calgary to Medicine Hat, and fill my lungs with that pure air.
Also was in Vancouver, Quebec and others places, but it was as a sailor that visited few Nova Scotia ports and I was sold, even when they can throw stones at each other the Qubecois and Bagpipe-blowers.
Nice tribute to a great place.

Georg
