Red Velvet 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 the ends of being and ideal grace.

I love thee to the level of every day'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
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

Happy Valentine's Day!!
