Celebrating Poetry in April: 2. Sonnet VII Elizabeth Barrett Browning

2 April 2020

Today’s sonnet is from Elizabeth Barrett Browning. It’s Sonnet VII from her collection Sonnets From The Portuguese, featuring 44 love poems written between 1845 and 1846. They were published in 1850.

This is not one of the more popular sonnets from the collection; that acclaim goes to sonnet 43, which begins, famously, “How do I love thee? Let me count the ways….”

Enjoy!

as always………………….rvw
