How Do I Love Thee
by Elizabeth Barrett Browning

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
my souls 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
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.

Here is my take on the poem.......
a 'love you' card

If you choose to scrap a layout, card or project that uses a line, verse or inspiration from the poem and you link it to the post on Scrap that Poetry, you will get 5 extra chances to win the gift certificate. If you post a link to Scrap that Poetry blog and mention the blog hop on your blog, you will receive an extra 2 chances if you tell us in the comment section.
If scrap that Poetry breaks 100 followers, Jennifer will raise the gift certificate to $20.

Thank you so much for joining us! We hope you enjoy yourself!
