CHARLES KINGSLEY

1819-1875

748                                             Airly Beacon

AIRLY Beacon, Airly Beacon;
   O the pleasant sight to see
Shires and towns from Airly Beacon,
   While my love climbd up to me!
Airly Beacon, Airly Beacon;
   O the happy hours we lay
Deep in fern on Airly Beacon,
   Courting through the summers day!

Airly Beacon, Airly Beacon;
   O the weary haunt for me,
All alone on Airly Beacon,
   With his baby on my knee!
