Airly Beacon Poem by Charles Kingsley

Airly Beacon

Rating: 2.5

Airly Beacon, Airly Beacon;
Oh, the pleasant sight to see
Shires and towns from Airly Beacon,
While my love climbed up to me!

Airly Beacon, Airly Beacon;
Oh, the happy hours we lay
Deep in fern on Airly Beacon,
Courting through the summer's day!

Airly Beacon, Airly Beacon;
Oh, the weary haunt for me,
All alone on Airly Beacon,
With his baby on my knee!

What would be a two season plot line in a soap opera is here told very effectively in 3 short verses.

A tragic situation of a father and child sans a life companion is highly bitterest one in life exposing it as top light from beacon and is indeed a pinnacle of human tragedy as the poet! A highly sorrowful poem to read indeed!

Isn't it told from the female point of view? The lover has gone, leaving his squeeze with a child to raise?
