Song. "If Love Were But A Little Thing --" - Poem 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 --
   Wild love -- which, as God knows, is sweet --
One might not make of life and death
   A pillow for love's feet.
