My white canoe, like the silvery air
O’er the River of Death that darkly rolls
When the moons of the world are round and fair
I paddle back from the Camp of Souls
When the wish ton-wish in the low swamp grieves
Come the dark plumes of red Singing Leaves

Isabella Valancy Crawford

Canadian writer and poet. One of the first
Canadians to make a living as a freelance writer
‘Crawford is increasingly being viewed as Canada’s
first major poet”
