Such a character that Lamplighter is. He scrambles and scrambles all the day long to try to get the street lamps in London all lit just a bit faster so that he may quickly return home to his wife. In the end he finally figures out just how he can accomplish this. At this particular point in Tony Troy's Musical, "The Flute Player's Song," the lamplighter learns a lesson from an old beggar woman. Two is where it's at. The woman has a thing for things in twos. The lamplighter thinks she's crazy until it dawns on him that two poles will light his lamps twice as fast getting him home faster than ever before!!! Tony's work is so wonderfully whimsical!
Part of a series of Illustrations from 'THE FLUTE PLAYER'S SONG,' an upcoming musical that is set around the many colorful and enchanting street characters of London. A heartwarming illustration for Tony Troy's musical "The Flute Player Song".
"well, don't look at me," mumbled the grumpy lamplighter to the two apples.
"I'm not placing you side by side so's you can talk to each other. I'm not mad
like that old woman. D'you hear?"
