I came across this lovely Oddbod whilst looking for an image of a lamplighter.

What an oddbod this is.

 LIGHT THE LAMPS UP, LAMPLIGHTER
(For a Lamplighter, a Grandmother,
the Angel Gabriel, and Any Number of Others)


Light the lamps up Lamplighter,
The people are in the street -
Without a light
They have no sight,
And where will they plant their feet?
Some will tread in the gutter,
And some in the mud - oh, dear!
Light the lamps up, Lamplighter,
Because the night is here.

Light the candles, Grandmother,
The children are going to bed -
Without a wick
They'll stumble and stick,
And where will they lay their head?
Some will lie on the staircase,
And some in the hearth - oh, dear!
Light the candles, Grandmother,
Because the night is here.


Light the stars up, Gabriel,
The cherubs are out to fly -
If heaven is blind
How will they find
Their way across the sky?
Some will splash in the Milky Way,
Or bump on the Moon - oh, dear!
Light the stars up, Gabriel,
Because the night is here.

This beautiful poem was written by
Eleanor Farjeon.
