What Now???

"Why do I love" You, Sir?
Because—The Wind does not require the GrassTo answer—
Wherefore when He passShe cannot keep Her place.
Because He knows—andDo not You—And We know not—
Enough for UsThe Wisdom it be so—
The Lightning—never asked an EyeWherefore it shut—
when He was by—Because He knows it cannot speak—
And reasons not contained——Of Talk—T
here be—preferred by Daintier Folk—The Sunrise—
Sire—compelleth Me—Because He's Sunrise—and I see—
Therefore—Then—I love Thee—
Emily Dickinson
