Writings of Robert Louis Stevenson
“There is scarce a deep sea light from Isle of Man | To North Berwick, but one of my blood designed it. | The Bell Rock stands monument for my Grandfather | The Skerry Vhor for my Uncle Alan | And when the lights come out along the shores of Scotland | I am proud to think that they burn brightly for | The genius of my Father.
