by Sara Teasdale (1884 - 1933)

Less than the cloud to the wind
Language: English 
Less than the cloud to the wind,
Less than the foam to the sea,
Less than the rose to the storm,
Am I to thee.

More than the star to the night,
More than the rain to the tree,
More than heaven to earth
Art thou to me.
