It could be by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Caroline Heal

Thanks to Caroline Heal, we found the poem in Ella Wheeler Wilcox's Poetical Works, published in 1917. The poem is called 'Dawn'. The text is as follows:

Day's sweetest moments are at dawn;
Refreshed by his long sleep, the Light
Kisses the languid lips of Night,
Ere she can rise and hasten on.
All glowing from his dreamless rest
He holds her closely to his breast,
Warm lip to lip and limb to limb,
Until she dies for love of him.
