Elizabeth Barrette Browning's Famous
Poem "How Do I Love Thee"
Is a true testimony of love between two people.
When Elizabeth was 15 she was stricken ill.
Her father was overly protective and forbade her to marry.
He did have her poems published.
She lived in seclusion in her sickroom as an invalid
untill Robert Browning, also a poet, wrote her a letter
and then they began a correspondence. He visited her and they fell in love.
Soon they secretly married and moved to Italy to help her health.
They had a son Pen, and lived deeply in love for many years
Elisabeth suffered many spells and during one she died
some what unexpectedly in Robert's arms.
Just moments before she had been kissing him.
He never again married.She was only 55
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.
