Transcript of How Do I Love Thee?

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways,
I love thee to the breadth depth 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 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 breadth,
Smiles, tears, all my life!-and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death. How Do I Love Thee? About the author, Elizabeth Barrett Browning:
