There stands a tower by the Atlantic side. A grey old tower, by storm and sea-waves beat. Perch'd on a cliff, beneath it yawneth wide. A lofty cavern of yore a fit retreat. For pirates galleys; altho', now, you'll meet. Nought but the seal and wild gull; from that cave. A hundred steps do upwards lead your feet. Unto a lonely chamber! -- Bold and brave. Is he who climbs that stair, all slippery from the wave. (poem GRANUAILE)  Author unknown
