The beam of the lighthouse


On the hills of carpeted lands 
Sprinkle spread as far the eye can see 

Dandelions claim this land as their own 
Bright and yellow like victory songs loud 

On the hills of carpeted lands 
At an advantage for the observers' watch 

Lighthouse stands like flag post to spot 
Beaming light for sailors' rescue 

On the hills of carpeted lands 
Structured built as a mighty house 

To give the light a backbone of rock to stand on 
Grand and symbolic to journeys' end 

On the hills of carpeted lands 
Wild as weed, voyagers travel out to sea 

Seeking route to adventures' fortune 
And assigned gift of promises of faithfulness 

On the hills of carpeted lands 
A pact is made, a happiness awarded

A symbolic medallion for travelers comfort 
That the home of hearts will wait for love 

On the hills of carpeted lands 
Spring would beam bright the essence of dandelions 

Picture by: Lighthouse Dandelions by Jamie Wyeth

    A beacon of hope can be in the form of a person who is prepared to sacrifice for others. Nice thoughts Kodjo!
