A Tribute to a Light House


Light House.
Beacon of light,
Leading us safely to shore.
Keep us from danger as we explore.
Shine bright!

Tall tower.
Our guiding light,
Shining out over the sea,
Bringing each vessel safely to thee.
Keep on!

Sentry.
Even in fog,
Your horns sound deep and loud,
To warn us of the foggy shroud.
Our hope!

Striped one.
Each day and night,
You show us the right way,
So that on course we can safely stay.
Stand tall!

Sea guide.
Security,
You give in sight and sound,
To us, whenever you are around.
Thank you!

This poem was written in honor of National Lighthouse Day.  On August 7, 1789, the United States Congress approved an act for the “establishment and support of Lighthouse, Beacons, Buoys, and Public Piers.”  It was two hundred years later that Congress designated August 7 as National Lighthouse Day.
