Signals from Saint Barbara

While peering out from behind the eight
Signals from Saint Barbara seem to weight.

Answers clear as Saint Elmo’s Fire
Why heard now I begin to admire.

On Green Hill the winds do blow
Saint Didacus of Alcalá, Saint Diego.

Should one ever then meet Saint B's fate
May they enjoy the surf and cosmic wake.

While signs above proclaim the Right
Glowing phosphorus forever hides the light.
