Oh Voyageur!

You ride the waves. Oh Voyageur!

Sun beating on your leathered back,

As muscles strain ‘gainst breaking waves

In deep uncharted wilderness.

.
While as you toil, there comes a tune,

When dipping paddles to the song.

A shanty verse as you traverse

Vast waters of this wild bold land.

.
From rivers edge you carry packs

Along a stunning rich landscape

To pass cascade falls that deny

Swift passage any other way

.
These grizzled veterans of the North

Delighted in their labor’s fruits.

.
