Why Do I Love You, Sir?

poem 480

Why do I love You, Sir? Because The Wind does not require the Grass To answer Wherefore when He pass She cannot keep Her place. Because He knows and Do not You And We know not Enough for Us The Wisdom it be so The Lightning never asked an Eye Wherefore it shut when He was by Because He knows it cannot speak And reasons not contained Of Talk There be preferred by Daintier Folk The Sunrise Sire compelleth Me Because He’s Sunrise and I see Therefore Then I love Thee
