Why do I love you, Sir?

Emily Dickinson

oOOo

 

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.
