The Oil Lamp …
standing upright much as a soldier on parade. The base, cleaned and refilled, silver burner polished to gleaming brightness. The wick trimmed, now standing in attention. Glass chimney thoroughly scrubbed so not one single speck of soot mars the surface.
The oil lamp stands on the table in a modest home. Now to be found in many homes. At the ready for the approaching night when once again it will light the way from darkness to light for those to appreciate man’s great progress.
most wondrous thing to behold
now it never sleeps

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have an excellent week. Try not to burn too much midnight oil, my friends … and remember to take care of you!
