Multicultural Day

People of many Nations of black and white and brown
They celebrate their cultures in the big park in the town
Migrants and children of migrants from places near and far away
Their cultures are celebrating on Multicultural Day

People of Australasia, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the Americas the contrast it is great
They sing their songs and dance their dances and their cultures celebrate
Their costumes are so beautiful so flowery and so bright
A look into their cultures is an amazing sight.

Their music, song and dance and food and cultures with them they do bring
The gift of Multiculturalism it is a marvellous thing
The vast differences in cultures interesting for to see
And song and dance and music does lead to harmony.

In the blue and sunny sky above the city just a few clouds of gray
They sing and dance and play their music their cultures on display
People of many Nations from near and far away
The town is full of colour on Multicultural Day.

A most beautiful ode to multiculturalism! We need something like this poem as the theme for Canada. Especially, Toronto. Francis, thank you for acknowledging!
