I RISE in the dawn, and I kneel and blow

Till the seed of the fire flicker and glow;

And then I must scrub and bake and sweep

Till stars are beginning to blink and peep;

And the young lie long and dream in their bed

Of the matching of ribbons for bosom and head,

And their ~y goes over in idleness,

And they sigh if the wind but lift a tress:

While I must work because I am old,

And the seed of the fire gets feeble and cold.

.: :.

This poem is amazing. The pure Irony for some of the perfectly executed lines Likke Juxtaposition between the old and the young.
In Lines "Till the seed of the fire flicker and glow;
" and ten " And the seed of the fire gets feeble and cold" In my opinion the contrast of the old and young happen hear for me. >> Line two > Lune Ten

.: :.

Yeats is giving an early voice to his nationalist opinions in this poem. The tired old mother inhabited the physical space that supported life before the frivilous and exploitative 'new' generation. The old are forced to work for the new - Irish vs English. Well maybe?!
The ten lines of ten box in the woman. Therefore her political or psychological space forces this repetition. The drugery of an exploited individual within a hegemonic societal structure, prevents her from standing proud and erect and so 'look outside the box' to see the injustice of her subordination.
