102. Song
 
By 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—        5
  Wild love—which, as God knows, is sweet—
One might not make of life and death
  A pillow for love’s feet.
