How Do I Love Thee? Sonnet 43 – Elizabeth Barrett Browning poem reading | Jordan Harling Reads

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. How Do I Love Thee? Sonnet 43 – written by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Narrated by Jordan Harling
