Knights of the Lamppost There is a lamppost, shining bright, Giving off a brilliant light, Many a person, under to pass, Their essence, in its beam, to cast, Others under it, there to stand, Many a future romance planned Like a soldier straight, standing there, Many a secret tale could share, Its light to brighten many a darkened place, Shadows of time, nobody wanting to face, The moon also, shining down from high, When she is welcomed in the sky, But should a cloud darken her face, The streets, no longer a very safe place, The lampposts are knights, all in disguise, In their stance, all of one size, Such a chivalrous part to play, In all weathers they stand, their glory to be, Yet we, their presence may never see, So used to them, day and night, Their place in our world just so right.
