CHARLES GEORGE DOUGLAS ROBERTS
Canadian poet, writer and editor
(1860 - 1943)

Awake, my country, the hour of dreams is done.
  Doubt not, nor dread the greatness of thy fate,
    Tho' faint souls fear the keen confronting sun
      And fain would bid the morn in splendor wait;
        Tho' dreamers, wrapped in starry visions, cry
          "Lo, yon thy future, yon thy faith, thy fame!"
            And stretch vain hands to stars, thy fame is nigh,
              Here in Canadian hearth, and home and name--
                This name which yet shall grow
                  Till all the nations know
                    Us for a patriot people, heart and hand
                      Loyal to our native hearth, our own Canadian land!
      - [Dominion Day]

When the Sleepy Man comes with the dust on his eyes
  (Oh, weary, my Dearie, so weary!)
    He shuts up the earth, and he opens the skies.
      (So hush-a-by, weary my Dearie!)
      - Sleepy Man [Sleep]

O wild, dark flower of woman,
  Deep rose of my desire,
    An Eastern wizard made you
      Of earth and stars and fire.
      - The Rose of my Desire [Women]

Time, like a flurry of wild rain,
  Shall drift across the darkened pane!
      - The Unsleeping [Time]
