How Do I Love Thee? - by Elizabeth Barrett Browning

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth and height...

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 an 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 grief's, 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
