GET UP, by         Recitation by Author     Poet's Biography
First Line: Get up!' the caller calls, 'get up'
Last Line: I may not ope again.
Subject(s): Labor & Laborers; Work; Workers


'Get up!' the caller calls, 'Get up!'
And in the dead of night,
To win the bairns their bite and sup,
I rise a weary wight.

My flannel dudden donn'd, thrice o'er
My birds are kiss'd, and then
I with a whistle shut the door,
I may not ope again.
