Why did he love her? Ask the passing breeze Why it has left the lilies in their bloom The great white blossoms of magnolia trees, And jasmine flowers, that kindle up the gloom Of Southern woods, where the vast live oak grows, And mocking birds sing love notes to the rose. Ask why it turned from these and lowly flew To kiss the purple violets in their dew.

Yes, ask the breezes; love is like to them In the free poising of his restless wing. Sometimes he searches for a priceless gem, But often takes a pebble from the spring. To his veiled eyes the humble pebble shines Bright as a jewel from Golconda's mines. Expect no answer why love chooses so His reasons are as vague as winds that blow.
