Lighthouse of Moore
by Seth Tagriel
Age Group: Adult
Lighthouse of Moore
On a stormy midsummer night, the story begins
As waves crash about and clouds start to spin
A hulk caught in a furious fight
One to which it might last the night
Upon the little island of Moore
There was a lighthouse near the shore
Built in the times Romans ruled the earth
Of wood and stone, it stood strong since birth
Its shining light was the brightest ever seen
From western shores and every island in-between
Its safe guarding light helped the smallest of cogs
Find their way through terrible thick fog
Now this lighthouse finds itself in another fight
One to make sure this hulk last the night
As swelling waves of freezing cold
Crash over the bow and into the hold
On top of Poseidon's treacherous waves
It's dry land the sailors start to crave
As the helmsmen spots with his telescope
A distant light, a beacon of hope
So toward the lighthouse the ship sails
Over black waves and through mighty gales
A helpful friend it sails to seek
For now the storm has reached its peek
Neptune's strong and mighty rage
Was a driven and focused rampage
One that has not been seen in an age
One to which it is difficult to gauge
The captain wheels his ship about
To what the lighthouse has pointed out
Avoiding jagged rocks and shallow reefs
Allowing the sailors to breath sighs of relief
And through the tumbling waves and swirling wind
A friend the hulk found, one that it can trust in
For if the lighthouse had not been near
Death for surely would have been here
The ship drops its anchor in good form
As by the lighthouse it waits out the storm
Now this angry storms new driving force
Changes its direction and shifts its course
With the help of the lighthouse’s guiding light
The hulk floats thankful it had survived the night
As clouds break apart and waves now descend
It's a cool midsummer day; the story comes to an end
