Salish | A Poetry on Vancouver Island

Loud waves and wild trails;

Tall pines and snowy alpines;

April showers and May flowers;

Fresh ferns and Morels at burns;

Stinging Nettles and dew settles;

Picking berries and rugged terrain worries;

Ancient groves and archipelagic coves;

Foggy August and pollen dust;

Still warm September and the last bit of summer;

Foraging chanterelles and black bear dwells;

Fall rains and misty terrains;

Pine matsutake and winter break-y;

Evergreen fir and cold copious smir;

A lonely old doug, too giant to hug;

Say Hi to Vancouver Island,

Where the sea meets the sand!

This land is the traditional, ancestral and unceded territories of the Kwakwaka’wakw, Nuu-chah-nulth, and Coast Salish peoples. We are grateful to the First People of Canada, who have been stewards of this land since time immemorial.
