Simple Pleasures III ~ The Lighthouse Keeper by 

The Lighthouse Keeper a poem by RestLeSs D

The lighthouse keeper
He leads a quiet life.
He spends his days gardening
With his dear and loving wife.

He is keeping up the homestead,
Patching a storm-worn door.
Or replacing a wind blown shingle
Whilst keeping an eye upon the shore.

The children grew & left long ago
Moved to the world outside
They come to visit often though,
Loving the sound of the constant tide.

The lighthouse keeper
Lives a peaceful life.
Simple pleasures are all he needs
Including his dear, sweet wife…
