Thanks for Visiting!



"Let our lamps be burning signals
For our brothers out at sea ---
Then their ships are soon returning,
Oh! How glad our hearts will be.

There are many that have left us,
Never more will they return;
Left our hearts with sorrows aching,
Still our lamps must brightly burn."

by Elizabeth Whitney Williams,
a northern Michigan lighthouse keeper from 1884-1913
