How do I love thee ...

Lets write our own version of "How Do I Love Thee"


here's the orginal
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 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.

I love thee to the depth of your sparling eyes and breadth of your love and height of _____? (anyone care to fill in the blank?)

Re: How do I love thee ...

I'm sorry, Snafu, all I can think of is "I love thee to the width of my C-section scars and the depth of my deflated-balloon-belly-overhang."
