Anne Higgins: "Tribute Poem"

                                           Praise for late sleeping day,
                                           waking up without alarm,
                                           for corkscrews,
                                           corkscrew call of
                                           yellowing lustful goldfinches,
                                           opposable thumbs,
                                           lusciously plush perfume
                                           of viburnum
                                           blooming in the woods
                                           just now
                                           just now.
