“Where poetry is more than just words” Save Al Purdy’s Home Tribute

“Where poetry is more than just words”
Save Al Purdy’s Home Tribute

To tear the roots of Canadian poetry is
like felling the maple tree
a century of words
left to rot.

His home & verse, trunk and branches
together with his friend Acorn,
our national history grew leaves…
flowers & fruits as heritage,
from coast to coast,
leagues of poets germinated,
from mountain tops
to glacial crest.

Let’s not allow the lumberjack to tear
down trunks or roots will rot
walls of his home, words,
raison d’être…
Canada’s national treasures.

Near century trees
left to seed
bright foliage for generations.

Your humble supporters,
Canadian Poetry Association President
