Edna St. Vincent Millay - The Philosopher

And what are you that, wanting you,
I should be kept awake
As many nights as there are days
With weeping for your sake?

And what are you that, missing you,
As many days as crawl
I should be listening to the wind
And looking at the wall?

I know a man that's a braver man
And twenty men as kind,
And what are you, that you should be
The one man in my mind?

Yet women's ways are witless ways,
As any sage will tell,—
And what am I, that I should love
So wisely and so well?

I had never seen the Common Rede in LOLcat. Very amusing, tugohh being unfamiliar with the Common Rede (I probably read it at one point, but I have slept many times since then) I ended up googling the Common Rede done straight to compare them. :-)And Srsly, iz cold owt heer too. Snow! Whatz up with that?
