'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 struck when He was by
Because He knows it cannot speak
And reasons not contained
Of Talk
There be preferred by Daintier Folk
The Sunrise Sir compelleth Me
Because He's Sunrise and I see
Therefore Then
I love Thee

by Emily Dickinson.
