WILLIAM WYE SMITH
(USED PSEUDONYM RUSTICUS)
Canadian clergyman and poet
( - 1917)

But what, it may be asked, are the requisites for a life of retirement? A man may be weary of the toils and torments of business, and yet quite unfit for the tranquil retreat. Without literature, friendship, and religion, retirement is in most cases found to be a dead, flat level, a barren waste, and a blank. Neither the body nor the soul can enjoy health and life in a vacuum.
      - [Retirement]

Here's to the land of the rock and the pine;
  Here's to the land of the raft and the river!
    Here's to the land where the sunbeams shine,
      And the night that is bright with the north-light's quiver!
        Here's to the land of the ax and the hoe!
          Here's to the stalwarts that give them their glory--
            With stroke upon stroke, and with blow upon blow,
              The might of the forest has passed into story!
      - [Dominion Day]
