Ode to Lee Sang Woo: Emily Dickinson

LSW 33

In honor of Valentine’s Day, I give you my second “Ode to Lee Sang Woo.” This poem certainly attempts to answer the question of why people love. 🙂 I hope you enjoy this little foray into the world of poetry. 😉 

Emily Dickinson – “‘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—
