Up up said the crowing cock | 15-Sep-11

Up up said the crowing cock,
can't you hear the village clock?
Everyone's up but you dear friend...

Enquirer is looking for this poem which her father used to recite to get them up in the mornings around 40 to 50 years ago. He was born in 1926 and probably learned the poem when he was a child.

My mother got us up with this poem in the late 40s and 50s
'Up up said the crowing cock
Don't you hear the village clock
I've been up for an hour or more
Crowing aloud at the stable door
Dobbin has gone with the boy to the plough
Betsy has started to milk the cow
Everyone's up young friend but you'

Margaret Carter
