It was dusk as I my friend and I were leaving the library today and we noted a pink-clouded sky as the city lamps were lit.  It reminded me of

Bing Crosby and The old Lamplighter

You’d hear the patter of his feet
As he came toddling down the street
His smile would hide a lonely heart you see

If there were sweethearts in the park
He’d pass a lamp and leave it dark

Who walks with him alone in memory

He made the night a little brighter wherever he would go
The old lamplighter of long, long ago
