Lighthouses Have Special Duties

by Jean Mollett

Lighthouses have special duties,
they stand boldly and stern on the
waters edge. Strong and mighty watching
over the ships, guiding them back. With
their bright shining beam piercing through
the darkness of any storms to help
bring them home safely.

Lighthouses have special duties,
helping ships to find their way. To let
the ships Captain know he's not too close
to land. That way they also know to watch
their monitors for extending land out from
the waters edge. Sometimes a little further out.

Lighthouses have special duties,
they also help guide airplanes along the way.
Like the lights on top of a tall building, so
they won't hit it coming or going. They give
you a comfortable, warm feeling, sense of
directions. The workmen inside the tower will
and can let someone know of dangers. Lighthouses
have special duties, the keeper has to help keep the
beautiful bright light shining. New or old,
they still have their own special beauty.



Author's Note: I've always loved Lighthouses. Haven't been in one yet. I have seen them up close.
