IF love were but a little thing,"Song" by Florence Earle Coates. Published in Harper's Bazar (September 1907), Lyrics of Life (1909) and Poems (1916) Volume II.
Strange love, which, more than all, is great—
One might not such devotion bring,
Early to serve and late.
If love were but a passing breath—
Wild love—which, as God knows, is sweet—
One might not make of life and death
A pillow for love's feet.
