Up and at it

When you feel so tired that you can't rest And so hungry that you can't eat When weariness caresses your soul like a lover And your very bones ache with wear When pains are your closest pals And sorrows make up your meals When the longing becomes soothing And the hunger becomes satisfying When your tree is cut down ere it can overreach a lad And your building is wrecked ere it is far risen from its pad When sundry fears take hold of your heart And your failures beset you about Then, rouse your spirit And say to yourself, Up and it
