The Honey Trees:To Be With You
Sonnets from the Portuguese 43:
How Do I Love Thee?
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 a 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 breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! — and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
~Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861)

”A woman’s always younger than a man
At equal years.”
Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861), British poet. Aurora Leigh, bk. 2 (1857). An explanation follows: … because she is disallowed Maturing by the outdoor sun and air, And kept in long-clothes past the age to walk.

Will not look the same by day.”

There’s a little fair brown nightingale, who, sitting in the gateways
Makes fitter music to our ears than any song of thine!”
