Inspirational Poem

I really like the sonnet “how Do I Love Thee” by Elizabeth Browning. The first time I read this sonnet was in high school. This poem is filled with imagery, sensibility and infatuation. Now that Valentine's is just around the corner, you can guys can post this to your loveletters addressed to your girl. I saw this poem one time in a Valentine card. Here's the poem:

How do I love thee?
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.

Eye Irritation and Headache

I am getting headache these past few days because of over exposure to the computer screen. During my free time in the  office, I usually update my blogs or read anything online. I am a wide reader. I think constant exposure to CRT also causes my eyes to irritate. Earlier, I bought a pair of eyeglasses that protects the eyes from UV exposure, I guess it will also be good when I read online. Furthermore, I may not need to wear my sunglasses anymore when walking under the sun. Hang on, I will just try my new eyeglasses.
