Lighthouse On The Shore

There is a lady all dressed in light, who stands above the jagged shore at night. To guide the sailing ships to safer seas and beg the wicked storms for calmer breeze. She ever shines her light across the bay, in hopeful search for love that sailed away. He left the land with plans to bring back gold, to ask her hand to wed, the story's told. When his ship met with tempest gales, the waves ripped the hull, wind stripped the sails. The lady waits at night for him on shore, as he still lays with gold on ocean floor. Sometimes you see her lonely light afar, it shines in the sky like a distant star. 12/16/18

Oh wow Wren - I just commented on Greg’s poem that there is something about lighthouses that compels us to personify - you have done this with outstanding craft! Stunning! You hooked me with the first line: “There is a lady all dressed in light”. Congratulations on your win!

First, I would to say- I like your profile photo. :) "Curly" is one of my favorites, on The Three Stooges. You paint such vivid images with your words. This is so beautiful and tender. Yes, she is a lady dressed in light. I would like to add this to my favorites, as your words hold many moments, so many emotions. Congratulations Wren, on Poem of the Day. ~ Brandy
