Elizabeth Barrett Browning

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.

How do I love thee (Sonnet 43) was written by Victorian poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning ( 1806 – 1861) and is considered her most famous work. Browning had been writing poetry since the age of five and was an inspiration to later literary figures such as Edgar Allen Poe and Emily Dickinson.
