How Do I Love Thee

erick's picture

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 thee with the pasion put to use

In my griefs, and with my childhood's faith.

I love thee with  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.


*from Sonnets from the Portugese XLIII


Lord, when I have a hammer like YOU, every problem becomes a nail. =)
