Emily Dickinson - 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!

Some may think that Mother is unnoticed, and that only Heaven regards her as special, but when she is gone the home will never be the same. Remember to thank her.
