The Ways of Love

The Ways of Love

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 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 paradise.
I love thee with the 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
