Lighthouse Keeper illustration whimsical lighthouse etching hand colored with poem
This beautifully expressive etching of a woman in a lighthouse by Liza Paizis www.LizaPaizis.com I love lighthouses and often imagine what it must be like to live in one amidst the crashing waves and lonesome sea...
This poem accompanies the image:
"Here I cast my solitary light Upon all that gather beneath me : The moonlit waves at play with ships, The shark’s eggs, turtles & mermaids fair, The love-struck sailors in their wake ; I hold them all to my shining heart longingly Then safe into the stormy night I set them free..." ~ Liza Paizis ~
