How Do I Love Thee

How Do I Love Thee Sonnet 43 Elizabeth Barrett Browning Calligraphy Print Clifford Mansley Sr

How Do I Love Thee?

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.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
