Stevenson, Robert Louis (1850–1894).  A Child’s Garden of Verses and Underwoods.  1913.
 
31. The Lamplighter

MY tea is nearly ready and the sun has left the sky;
It’s time to take the window to see Leerie going by;
For every night at teatime and before you take your seat,
With lantern and with ladder he comes posting up the street.
 
Now Tom would be a driver and Maria go to sea,         5
And my papa’s a banker and as rich as he can be;
But I, when I am stronger and can choose what I’m to do,
O Leerie, I’ll go round at night and light the lamps with you!
 
For we are very lucky, with a lamp before the door,
And Leerie stops to light it as he lights so many more;  10
And O! before you hurry by with ladder and with light;
O Leerie, see a little child and nod to him to-night!
