In celebration of Canada's 150 Year Anniversary


They had expected her classic portrait through the wine,

the deep oil on canvas, the triune colour,

her hidden nest near the forested body of water,

reflecting the wild and winsome throughout time.


About the Book . . .

This poignant and lyrical collection rises to stir our hearts from poverty to the ornamental. Emily Isaacson writes her sacred words as we enter the Baroque era of the internet. . . 


 She sets out to make a postmodern impact by using colour and style paired with the creativity necessary for survival.

A Gift With Outstretched Hands


I give you the land of Canada,

the gifts of following further,

growing in silence,

and daring to believe in beauty.


Canada, expanse

of the beautiful and free,

may liberty crown you with justice

in the realm of the unseen.

—Emily Isaacson

Do not despise thou love, nor rue its share,

the shelter it provides is providence,

the elegance of home is free from cares,

and thine bent head in prayer is evidence.



"Isaacson has added an iconic influence to an old art . . ."
