Lighthouse Poems and Songs
On this web page, the love of Lighthouses is a rich heritage of many Americans as noted by the popular poems and music listed below. The romance of Lighthouses may have many reasons. As with many New Englanders, Lighthouses lure us to the sea and most of us can trace our family history to the rich heritage of the sea. Yet, discovering that the “sea is in our blood” only scratches the surface of our interest in Lighthouses.
Perhaps our romantic walks along the beach at twilight under the sweeping light of a Lighthouse intrigued us to search and visit many Lighthouses. For my husband and myself, Lighthouses are symbols of Faith, Hope, and Love. I can envision being the lonely wife of a seaman who stands on the widow walk overlooking the sea for my husbands' return. The Lighthouse in the distance reassures me of its faithful Light providing hope of his safe return into my loving arms. Likewise, when my husband first sights the faithful Light overseeing the harbor, he also has hope of safely sailing home and renewing our love.Page Index:
