The Riveter

The Riveter by Mabel Watts

This worker is a fearless one,
a daring acrobat,
He creeps across the narrow beams,
As steady as a cat.
He shifts and swings the girders,
while the wind about him blows.
He drives the red-hot rivets,
though a fly sits on his nose.
Imagine how it feels to work
up twenty stories high,
Riveting the girders there
that shine against the sky!
