Song. "If love were but a little thing —"

Florence Earle Coates

If love were but a little thing —
 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.
