First Line: Why is it, since I know you now
Last Line: Knowing you, I believe you now?
Subject(s): Love - Nature Of


Why is it, since I know you now
As light as any wanton is,
And, knowing, need not wonder how
You work that wonder of your kiss,
Why is it, since I know you now,

Still, in some corner of my brain,
There clings a lost, last, lingering
Doubt of my doubts of you again,
A foolish, unforgetting thing,
Still, in some corner of my brain?

Is it because your lips are soft,
And warm your hands, and strange your eyes,
That I believe again the oft
Repeated, oft permitted lies,
Because your lips are warm and soft?

For what you are I know you now,
For what it means I know your kiss;
Yet, knowing, need one wonder how,
Beneath your kisses, how it is,
Knowing you, I believe you now?
