Lighthouse Keeper

Wind and snow and rain and sleet 

The lighthouse keeper shines

his light upon the metal sheet,

and round and round it chimes.  

Ahoy! freighters and pleasure crafts,
canoes and kayakers too,
He guides them all just like a map,
he  does know what to do.

He lives on that rock day and night
Supplies are brought to him
He is the master of that light
Through fog both thick and thin.

The power of that lighthouse charm
like the mountain beyond,
Keeps weary seafarers from great harm
They form a special bond.

Ahoy! Ahoy! the echoing sounds,
The lighthouse keeper hears
He runs quickly in leaps and bounds,
and hears the rescued cheer!
