Poems: How Do I Love Thee?

Monday, November 26, 2007

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 everyday'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 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.

How do I love thee?
By: Elizabeth Barrett Browning

This is one of my favorite poems that I have read during my high school days. Medyo medyo memorize ko pa nga ito hangang ngayon.
