Sonnet 43 - How Do I Love Thee? Let Me Count The Ways

Rating: 3.7
XLIII

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 the passion put to use

The same as HOW DO I LOVE THEE Poem, also by EBB. This is a WOW-Poem, means, most beautiful, most touching and most read by readers, since it is such a terrific bestest poem, created by EBB and inspired of course by her husband. A supertalented lady, a woman of all periods and ages, a true immortal poem from the very start. EBB is a very learned woman and despite her constant pains, God has given her many talents, as we all know. A poem full of superlatives to be mentioned.

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