Why do I love You Sir?


Why do I love You Sir?

Why do I love You Sir? :

“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.

By Emily Dickinson
