August 7th…………“GRANDPA, WHEN YOUR FAMILY MOVED FROM MINNESOTA TO WASHINGTON STATE, IN 1967, DID YOU EVER TRAVEL TO THE COAST TO SEE LIGHTHOUSES? WHICH ONE IS YOUR FAVORITE?
POEM – “Tillamook Light, So Special To Me”. Created by N. Elliott Noorlun on November 5th, 2015.
A seagull’s song, Welcomes me,
Back to these shores, Where I can see,
Tillamook Light, Who in shrouds of mist,
Still stands her ground, That time has kissed.
Relentless storms, And pounding surf,
Have tried since when, Her light gave birth,
To rip her beacon, Back down to earth,
Yet still she stands, In all her worth.
Thousands of seamen, Since days of sail,
That if not for her light, Death shrieks would wail!
Ohhh Tillamook Light, So special to me,
For dear memories only, My heart can see.
