From reef and rock and skerry-over headland, ness and voe- The Coastwise Lights of England watch the ships of England go! Through the endless summer evenings, on the lineless, level floors; Through the yelling Channel tempest when the syren hoots and roars- By day the dipping house-flag and by night the rocket's trail- As the sheep that graze behind us so we know them where they hail. We bridge across the dark, and bid the helmsman have a care, The flash that wheeling inland wakes his sleeping wife to prayer; From our vexed eyries, head to gale, we bind in burning chains The lover from the sea-rim drawn-his love in English lanes.Hide synopsis
