Treasure Island

David Harris

(18 June 1945 / Bradfield, England)

Guiding Light

Like a lighthouse on a stormy night,
that shines bright for ailing ships,
to steer them to a friendly port.
I need a light to guide me,
to her awaiting arms.
A guiding light to lead me safely,
to her open door.
That I may end my search,
with love warmth evermore.

    You are a true romantic, David: Your opening couplet is the best in the poem:

    'Like a lighthouse on a stormy night,
    that shines bright for ailing ships, ' Especially the 'ailing ships.' Great image.

    Keep up the good work.

What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
