Joseph Skipsey

Here you will find the Poem Get Up! of poet Joseph Skipsey

Get Up!

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.
