Land of Lakes, where pines stand tall
Elbowing the water-fall.
Blue sky meets the world's rough rim ...
Nature ever chants her hymn.

Spring, arbutus trails the moss,
Apple blossoms pinkly toss;
June's sweet clover feeds the bees,
Grainfields ripple in the breeze.

Autumn ... maples flaunt their red.
Moss has carpeted their bed
Whereon dream of worlds beyond
Golden hills or old mill-pond.

Winter comes to blow and shrill,
Snow and ice the valleys fill,
Farmers shiver with their cattle,
Blizzards roar and casements rattle.

By a cozy fireside --
Hours all too swiftly glide!
Boreas is holding court
For the Northland winter sport!
