Love Stories for Valentines
Valentines Day is for romance and other sweet stories of affection. Whether it is two young people in love, school kids exchanging cards, sending flowers to a lonely senior person or just doing something thoughtful for a friend, it is a time for caring. Love poems abound during this time. People spend lots of time in the card section trying to find that perfect card with just the right message or perhaps making up their own personalized poetic message.
Through out our history there are great love stories. Those that over came hardships and weathered the storm. Many have lovely endings. Once such story is that of Robert and Elizabeth Browning. Perhaps you remember Elizabeth’s famous poem to Robert:
How Do I Love Thee? (Sonnet 43)
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.
On January 10, 1845, The great poet, Robert Browning wrote to Elizabeth Barrett. She was an internationally renowned poet and he was a 32 year old poet who was not yet famous. Robert was enamored with her poetry and volume of poems. In his message to Elizabeth he said “I love your verses with all my heart, dear Miss Barrett—I do, as I say, love these verses with all my heart”. This started a 20 month long correspondence of over 600 letters and is one of the greatest literary correspondences.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning was the daughter of Mary Moulton Barrett and Edward Barrett. Her father as an extremely wealthy landowner who owned sugar plantations in Jamaica. When Elizabeth was just 21, her mother passed away. She was the oldest of the family’s 12 children and often thought to be her father’s favorite child. Edward Barrett was a strict man and forbid his children to get married. In 1846, against Edward’s wishes, Robert and Elizabeth secretly wed.
Some of Elizabeth’s illness was thought by her physician to be worsened by the cold winters in London. He recommended she travel to Pisa Italy. It was there that Robert and she would spend the next 15 years of their lives. They secretly married and had a son. Living happily until her death in 1861, they continued to write poetry. One of the most famous poetic lines ever written came from Barrett Browning’s Sonnets From the Portuguese (1850). The well known line is , “How do I love thee? Let me count the ways”.
Elizabeth continued her works completing a second edition of Poems, as well as Casa Guidi Windows (1851), Poems before Congress (1860), and her well known verse-novel, Aurora Leigh (1857). She was an activist for Italian nationalism, the abolition of American slavery, and for the advancement of women. Robert published Men and Women, which was a dedication to his wife Elizabeth. She died in his arms on June 29, 1861.
