Emily Dickinson (1830–86).  Complete Poems.  1924.

Part One: Life

XVII


WHEN night is almost done,
And sunrise grows so near
That we can touch the spaces,
It ’s time to smooth the hair
  
And get the dimples ready,        5
And wonder we could care
For that old faded midnight
That frightened but an hour.
