    Default The Lighthouse

    I'm standin on the coast so high
    Makin sure sailors can see this coastline
    For its dark and they cannae see
    But they see ma light they'll be fine

    I used to have a wee man inside me
    Makin sure ma bulbs were workin'
    But he got paid off he's no there anymore
    No more songs fae him,I'm hurtin

    But I have seen sunset horizons
    And universal nightimes for years
    But ma given task in ma given chore
    Was so sailors had no fears

    So I'll be here on ma own
    Until ma bricks begin to cave
    For I have lived and done ma task
    In the lives I've helped to save

    Default The biright light

    Eddystone and Wolf Rocks guard the sea,
    A light strong brilliant for sailors to see.
    Where skerries an' hidden dangers lurk
    The light shines like a beacon in the dark.
    Where wreckers used to false lights shine.
    Where mariners went to meet the devine,
    But still the true light shines above the sea.
    A guiding light to you and me.

    Over the pond, but not quite over the hill yet


    Your poems are both super, Cedric and LIZZ!

    I've always been rather fascinated by lighthouses myself. Although it's been a number of years since I lived in Thurso, I can still remember the plaintive call of the foghorn emanating from Holborn Head lighthouse. When I was a young girl, my family and I were lucky enough to have a tour inside its light, and that of Dunnet Head lighthouse as well!
    I am living for today, always remembering yesterday, and looking forward to tomorrow!
