Poem by Alfred Edward Housman


Last Poems. 11. Yonder See the Morning Blink


Yonder see the morning blink:
        The sun is up, and up must I,
To wash and dress and eat and drink
And look at things and talk and think
        And work, and God knows why.

Oh often have I washed and dressed
        And whats to show for all my pain?
Let me lie abed and rest:
Ten thousand times Ive done my best
        And alls to do again.
