Originally published in 1897.
The poems are characterised by genial cheer and moral earnestness. Wright identified country life with manly virtue and womanly purity, and town existence with industrial strife, crime and effeminacy. His bitterest invective was directed at grasping station bosses, and at strikers, whom he generally portrayed as work-shy.
