Except to Heaven, she is nought

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!
