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 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 a 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.
{Elizabeth Barrett Browning}

Just posting again to share some love tokens that are currently on my website:
Simple Joys Paperie.

I have to mail a few sets of Angel Wings today and then make a few more love tokens for SJP.

Maybe next week I can start on Spring things. :)

Take Care and God Bless,


  1. That poem always gives me chill bumps, it's soooo beautiful!
    The paperweight is fabulous :)

  2. Posting this for Sherry:

    "Hi Lana,
    I can't comment on your type of comment form for some reason, so I just wanted to wish you a happy Valentine's Day! I just love the valentine puzzles you make and all the heart in hand sweet things. I am so fond of hearts! But mostly I adore your sweet old-fashioned style! Have a wonderful week!

    Thank you so much for all the sweet words, Sherry! :)
