Description of this motif: Angels are described traditionally in Andersen's ouevre

Example :

"I think of you as often,
Hjalmar, my little dear,
As I've kissed your lips so soft, and
Your cheeks and your eyes so clear.
I heard your first laughter and weeping,
And too soon I heard your good-bys.
May God have you in his keeping,
My angel from the skies."
