by Charles Kingsley (1819 - 1875)

Airly beacon
Language: English 
Airly Beacon, Airly Beacon; 
O the pleasant sight to see 
Shires and towns from Airly Beacon, 
While my love climb'd up to me! 

Airly Beacon, Airly Beacon; 
O the happy hours we lay 
Deep in fern on Airly Beacon, 
Courting through the summer's day! 

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