Except to Heaven she is nought

by
 Except to Heaven, she is nought.
Except for Angels -- lone.
Except to some wide-wandering Bee A flower superfluous blown.
Except for winds -- provincial.
Except by Butterflies Unnoticed as a single dew That on the Acre lies.
The smallest Housewife in the grass, Yet take her from the Lawn And somebody has lost the face That made Existence -- Home!
