direct link to YouTube video: Horn-honking street-cheering Toronto celebrates Olympic Gold
of car horns,
laughing and waving-
Canada makes Olympic history.
As soon as the last overtime gold goal was scored,
people piled out of taverns, their homes, cheering.
You reach for the stars, Team Canada,
and they're gold.
Medals, a constellation of 14 stars
helping the country navigatenow-
An Olympic record, and first timefor us on home soil.
Rubbing gold stars
from our eyes
The red maple leaf,
flying high tonight.
The streets of Toronto explode into a Winter party.
A whole country berserk with celebration.
