How do I Love Thee?

Since we all seem to be in a lovvy dovvy kind of mood, set by Lord Byron, here is another beautiful classic, this time from Elisabeth Barrett Browning. Read this to a special someone today, and see what the reaction will be… then give us a full report below (or maybe a half-full report would do)   🙂

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 candle-light. I love thee freely, as men strive for right. I love thee purely, as they turn from praise. I love thee with the 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.

Elisabeth Barrett Browning
