LOVE'S REASONS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: For her gait if she be walking
Last Line: That for everything I love her.
Alternate Author Name(s): Browne, William Of Tavistock
Variant Title(s): Sonnet;song
Subject(s): Desire; Love

FOR her gait, if she be walking;
Be she sitting, I desire her
For her state's sake; and admire her
For her wit if she be talking;
Gait and state and wit approve her;
For which all and each I love her.

Be she sullen, I commend her
For a modest. Be she merry,
For a kind one her prefer I.
Briefly, everything doth lend her
So much grace, and so approve her,
That for everything I love her.
