Airly Beacon
By Charles Kingsley (1819–1875)
AIRLY Beacon, Airly Beacon;
  O the pleasant sight to see
Shires and towns from Airly Beacon,
  While my love climbed up to me!
Airly Beacon, Airly Beacon;        5
  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,        10
All alone on Airly Beacon
  With his baby on my knee!
