Happy Birthday Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Happy Birthday Elizabeth Barrett Browning.... How many of you have quoted or partly quoted this little gem on a scrapbook page? Happy scrapping, jenx www.wearcrafts.co.uk

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 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.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
