Sara Teasdale, comp. (1884–1933).
The Answering Voice: One Hundred Love Lyrics by Women.  1917.
 
Rhapsody
By Florence Earle Coates
 
AS the mother bird to the waiting nest,
  As the regnant moon to the sea,
As joy to the heart that hath first been blest—
  So is my love to me.
 
Sweet as the song of the lark that soars        5
  From the net of the fowler free,
Sweet as the morning that song adores—
  So is my love to me!
 
As the rose that blossoms in matchless grace
  Where the canker may not be,        10
As the well that springs in a desert place—
  So is my love to me.
