Cape Breton Tartan
Notions, hoop not included

THE CAPE BRETON TARTAN

A lady sat beside her loom,
With yarns of every hue
To weave Cape Breton tartan
She only chose a few.

Black for the wealth of our coal mines,
Grey for our Cape Breton steel,
Green for our lofty mountains,
Our valleys and our fields;

Gold for the golden sunsets
Shining bright on the lakes of Bras d'Or,
To show us God's hand has lingered
To bless Cape Breton's shores.

As she watched the pattern grow,
Then she could understand
Her shuttle had been guided
By the master weaver's hand.

- Lillian Crewe Walsh

This poem, written in 1907, was the inspiration for the Cape Breton tartan which was designed in 1957 by her friend, Mrs. Wilson Grant, a weaver.
(A sign of the times that my source cites her by her husband's name!)
