How Do I Love Thee ~ By Eliizabeth Barrett Browning

How Do I Love Thee?
by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of every day's
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

This is one of my all time favorite Love Sonnet's. I have this one hanging in my room. I have had it there for over 30 years. I thought this day of love would be the perfect time to share one of my all time favorite poems.


Do you have a favorite poem or love song?

Such a beautiful poem and so right for today! One of my favourites is "Stop All the Clocks" by W.H.Auden, and I did a post about it here -
