The Ambrose Light is a poem by John DaPrato.

Loud voices in the night
speak out
Sparks fly then turn to
ashes
White waves break under
grey stars
Old snow slides over winter
sand

I stand near ice-covered
rocks and
Look south over black
currents
To site distant ships with
colored lights
In the cold crosswinds

Then I look for the Ambrose
Light…

I keep looking -

It can’t be too far away…
