Stevenson, Robert Louis (1850–1894).  A Child’s Garden of Verses and Underwoods.  1913.
  
XXXIV. Skerryvore

FOR love of lovely words, and for the sake 
Of those, my kinsmen and my countrymen, 
Who early and late in the windy ocean toiled 
To plant a star for seamen, where was then 
The surfy haunt of seals and cormorants;         5
I, on the lintel of this cot, inscribe 
The name of a strong tower.
