You might try reading some of John McCrae's poetry here. There could be a poem that fits your needs.

I agree with Les (as ever). John McCrae's poetry is well worthwhile - go to the Classical Poet List on this site.

I just finished reading the September 2003 issue of The Garden, the journal for memebrs of The Royal Horticultural Society. Here is something from the letters page:

'I am one of eight volunteer garden workers and interpreters at the house in Guelph, Ontario, Canada in which John McCrae was born. The house is a museum with a garden of plants known to have been available to ordinary gardeners in the area.
When David Forsyth, a curator of the National Museum of Scotland, visited Guelph recently, we hoped that he might be able to increase our knowledge of the plant materials interchanged between southwest Ontario and Scotland from 1850-80 - the period during which the house was built. However, he explained that few domestic letters are available in the Scottish Archives.
Do any members have family material, such as letters asking for seeds to be sent out here or descriptions of what was growing in the new land, that they might share with us?

Mrs J A Scott, 79 Mary Street, Guelph, Ontario N1G 2A9'

There's a nice website about the house:

Has anyone been to see it, and can say what they think of it?

And can anyone help Mrs Scott?
