这一生中，我印象最深的灯塔有两座，一在鹅銮鼻，一在小琉球，前者屹立岸上，后 者屹立防波堤上，均发出极美的闪光，远达廿浬以上，前者尤为高大，为以钢筋水泥 建造，漆以白色，显得洁净突出，笔直典雅，雄伟稳健，高三五公尺四0公分，周围 廿一公尺六0公分，高出水面一百零八公尺，为远东的巨塔。
The Lighthouse Hsu ChiCheng
Towered aloft by the sea side, send off regular flash of light on regular time, the light house, is the guidepost of the sailor.
When it’s the night, wind and rain sweeping across a gloomy sky, or it’s barbaric in dense fog, it will send off the bright flash of light, guide the sailor to break through the difficulty, get rid of plight, dispel the dim, march toward to the right way, get no lost, or run into a submerged rock and sink.
There are two light houses made me deepest imprint in my life, one is located in Eluanbi, the other is located in Liuqiu, the former stands erectly on the bank, the latter stands on the breakwater, they all send off extreme beautiful flash of light which attain over 20nautical miles, especially the former is the taller one, built with reinforced concrete, painted with white colour, appears neat and tidy and outstanding, straight and elegant, majestic and steady, 35metre 40centimetre of tall, around with 21metre 60centimetre, 108metre high above the water surface, is the great tower of far east.
Every time I view the lighthouse, It seems I hear it summon:
Oh sailor, hold tight the helm,
Sail forward bravely,
Don’t lose your orientation!
In spite of winter or summer, in spite of wind and rain and sun, the light house stands erectly on the sea side, points the orientation to guide the sailor with its flashed finger.
The light house, it exhausts its power, sends the flash of light, guides the others, helps others, is the guidepost of the sailor. And there is a light house tower aloft in my mind, sending out the extreme beautiful bright flash of light…@
