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 --
