by Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886)

Angels, in the early morning
Language: English 
Available translation(s): FRE GER
Angels, in the early morning
May be seen the Dews among,
Stooping — plucking — smiling — flying —
Do the Buds to them belong?

Angels, when the sun is hottest
May be seen the sands among,
Stooping — plucking — sighing — flying —
Parched the flowers they bear along.
