SHOW ME THE WAY

Gero Gobos Lighthouse, Kefalonia
The Lighthouse at Gero Gobos Cape, Kefalonia

The rocky ledge runs far into the sea,
and on its outer point, some miles away,

the lighthouse lifts its massive masonry,
A pillar of fire by night, of cloud by day.
       .........................
Sail on!” it says:
“sail on, ye stately ships!” 
And with your floating bridge the ocean span; Be mine to guard this light from all eclipse.
Be yours to bring man nearer unto man.


(The Lighthouse
by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)
