Reader Shane White captured this stunning shot of the Bonavista Lighthouse.

On a chilly, wet morning,
from the cove by the bog,
came the lighthouse man's warning,
of the rocks in the fog.
That blanket of gossamer,
what lurks there beneath?
Tis' my love and the jaws of her,
beware of her teeth.
If a ship you be sailin',
through the wind and the cold,
if you're homebound from whalin',
if a cargo you hold,
heed the lighthouse man's warning.
Seek the lighthouse man's light.
For 'tis fog in the morning,
and my lover will bite.
