Streetlights

Streetlight's

     

                                         Each time's a wee bit different..,
                                                 these wondrous nightly show's
                                         Up.. and down the darkened street's..,
                                                 they flicker.. then they glow
                                         Like soldier's at attention..,
                                                 they stand.. and light the way
                                         Weather doesn't matter..,
                                                 they shine till break of day
                                         And there it isn't over..,
                                                 this duty's not like most
                                         Thur wind,, and rain.. sleet.. or snow..,
                                                 they never quit there post
                                         Still standing tall.. they show the way..,
                                                 when sunshine's bold.. and bright
                                          These soldier's of the long dark hour's..,
                                                 these guardian's of the night
                                          Each time's a wee bit different..,
                                                 these wondrous nightly show's
                                          Up..and down the darkened street's..,
                                                 ay.. they flicker.. then they glow
