Hi there, The actual title of this poem is "Cuttings (later)" there is a poem titled "Cuttings" by Roethke and is as follows:

Sticks-in-a-drowse droop over sugary loam,
Thier intricate stem-fur dries;
But still the delicate slips keep coaxing up water;
The small cells bulge;
One nub of growth
Nudges a sand-crumb loose,
Pokes through a musty sheath
Its pale tendrilous horn.

From The Norton Anthology of American Literature, Shorter Sixth Edition. Pages 2639-2640, New York: W.W. Norton and Company, 2003.
