Experimental Lighthouse

And as the evening darkens, lo!

Experimental Lighthouse, Trinity Buoy Wharf, Tower Hamlets, E14

How bright, through the deep purple of the twilight air,

Experimental Lighthouse, Trinity Buoy Wharf, Tower Hamlets, E14

Beams forth the sudden radiance of its light,

Jem Finer's Longplayer, Experimental Lighthouse, Trinity Buoy Wharf, Tower Hamlets, E14

with strange, unearthly splendour in the glare!

From Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s The Lighthouse (1850)

And as the evening darkens, lo! how bright,
through the deep purple of the twilight air,
Beams forth the sudden radiance of its light,
with strange, unearhly splendor in the glare!
And as the evening darkens, lo! how bright, 

through the deep purple of the twilight air,

Beams forth the sudden radiance of its light,

with strange, unearhly splendor in the glare!And as the evening darkens, lo! how bright, through the deep purple of the twilight air, Beams forth the sudden radiance of its light, with strange, unearhly splendor in the glare!
