The Laburnum Top is silent, quite still
in the afternoon yellow September sunlight,
A few leaves yellowing, all its seeds fallen
Till the goldfinch comes, with a twitching chirrup
A suddeness, a startlement, at a branch end
Then, sleek as a lizard and alert and abrupt,
She enters the thickness, and a machine starts up
Of Chitterings, and of tremor of wings, and trillings
The whole tree trembles and thrills
It is the engine of her family.
She stokes it full, then flirts out to a branch end
Showing her barred face identity mask
Then with cerie delicate whistle chirrup whisperings
She launches away, towards the infinite
And the laburnum subsides to empty
– Ted Hughes

As heart disease continues to be a major killer in the United States, researchers have become keenly interested in identifying the potential risk factors that trigger heart attacks. High fat diets and life in the fast lane have long been known to contribute to the high incidence of heart failure. But according to new studies, the list of risk factors may be significantly longer and astonishing.
Heart failure, e. g. , appears to have seasonal and temporal patterns. A higher percentage of heart attacks occur in cold weather and more people experience heart failure on Monday than on any other day of the week. In additional, people are more prone to heart attacks in the first few hours after waking. Cardiologists first observed this morning phenomenon in the mid 1980 and have since discovered a number of potential causes. An early morning rise in blood pressure, heart rate and concentration of heart stimulating hormones, plus a reduction of blood flow to the heart, may all contribute to the higher incidence of heart attacks between the hours of 8: 00 am and 10: 00 am. In other studies, both birthday and bachelorhood have been implicated as risk factors. Statistics prove that heat attack rate increases significantly for both females and makes in the few days immediately preceding and following their birthdays. And unmarried men are more at risk for heart attacks than their married counterparts. Though, stress is thought to be linked in some way to all of the aforementioned risk factors, intense research continues in the hope of future comprehending why and how heart failure is triggered.
