by Duncan Campbell Scott (1862 - 1947)

Angel
Language: English 
Come to me when grief is over,
     When the tired eyes,
Seek thy cloudy wings to cover
     Close their burning skies.

Come to me when tears have dwindled
     Into drops of dew,
When the sighs like sobs re-kindled
     Are but deep and few.

Hold me like a crooning mother,
     Heal me of the smart;
All mine anguish let me smother
     In thy brooding heart.
