Basil Rathbone performs Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s Sonnet 43 – How Do Love Thee? How Do I Love Thee? (Sonnet 43) by Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861) 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.

"And tulips, children love to stretch
Their fingers down, to feel in each
Its beauty’s sweet nearer."
