    Praiseworthy piece of work. An expression of keen loving nature of a beloved is shown with quite justification humour. (Report) Reply

    Being able to express such depth of love is unique. I pray it followed her into eternity. (Report) Reply

    There is nothing here of 'the heats which my veins fill' (Donne) . Pity the man who is loved only like this! (Report) Reply

    Poem captures the whole circumference of her sphere of love. Goes beyond the depth of the ocean to the limitless universe (Report) Reply

    Yes I have enjoyed Elizabeth's countdown of love for many many years. I especially like how she sneaks in 'I love thee with the passion put to use' Who can resist the bold advance of such a naughty girl. Although sonnet 38 is so much more daring after the opening 'First time he kissed me, he but only kissed The fingers'. My favourite lines here?
    ‘The third upon my lips was folded down
    In perfect, purple state; since when, indeed,
    I have been proud and said, 'My love, my own.' Go girl, he really laid that one on you. However I am confused Shielda, what is this To George Sand: A Desire all about?
    ‘Self-called George Sand! whose soul, amid the lions
    Of thy tumultuous senses, moans defiance
    And answers roar for roar, as spirits can:
    I would some mild miraculous thunder ran
    Above the applauded circus, in appliance’ But secretly I do believe I know, the answer to the riddle is A Recognition, yes or no? (Report) Reply

    How can one love another one is well said in this beautiful sonnet by Elizabeth Barret! This love will indeed continue unabatedly both in sorrow and joy and also after death! Wonderful poem! (Report) Reply

    this is one of my favorite sonnets again by Elizabeth Barrett Browning... ^_^

    this is a romantic sonnet written by elizabeth for her husband, robert, because of her great love for him....

    Elizabeth and Robert always write to each other to express their true and undying love for one another...

    and, THIS, really did it! This is one of the most popular sonnet ever to have been written and published... Every person in love could have felt connected with this piece...

    It is so beautiful that I read it ten times when I fist saw it... ^_^
    I memorized it now.. ^_^ (Report) Reply

It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
