"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

Why do, not does?

According with English grammar, why can't ask like, did she does well her job? why should say did she do well her job, despite we use does for third singular person?

    The conjugation of auxiliary verbs rarely makes sense. "To do" for questions take the following form.

    Does she / he / it do her / his / its job well? - Present simple.
    Did she do her job well? - Past simple.

    According to my English teacher way back in my high schools days, she taught us that when using:

    Did, Does, Do as part of your question, make sure to use always a base form of present tense form of a verb succeeding it.

    Does + present tense
    Did + present tense
    Do + present tense

    Does she like your dress?
    Did you forget something?
    Do you love your work?

    Something like that. ;)
