Airly Beacon - Poem by Charles Kingsley

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!

    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! (Report) Reply
