Stop Button Clutter!
To A Corkscrew
Duffield Osborne (1858-1917), American writer/poet

Thou who to burdened brain, and troubled heart
Dost wind thy way with gently sinuous art,
Slender, and graceful, curled with skill divine;
Mirth, riot, and revelry are ever thine
Whose office 'tis to seek and free the captive wine.

Hail! to thee men below and gods above
Attune their lays of homage and of love;
Fair silver ringlet! thou dost ever cling
With truer faith to peasant and to king
Than curls of brown or gold that lovesick poets sing.
