The lamplighter

The lamplighter, the man who beat the march of night with hardened soles on cobbles and brick and reached deep into the gloom to bring life.  Who turned the dampened streets a safe and sickly green as he walked. My grandfather told me of about the sacrifice of the lamplighter, to give the gift of light but to always face the dark.

But there are no lamplighters anymore.
