Lundy's Lane and Other Poems

by Duncan Campbell Scott


 

ANGEL


 

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

5

  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;

10
All mine anguish let me smother
  In thy brooding heart.
