by Christina Rossetti
My heart is like a singing bird
Whose nest is in a water’d shoot;
My heart is like an apple-tree
Whose boughs are bent with thick-set fruit;
My heart is like a rainbow shell
That paddles in a halcyon sea;
My heart is gladder than all these,
Because my love is come to me.
Raise me a daïs of silk and down;
Hang it with vair and purple dyes;
Carve it in doves and pomegranates,
And peacocks with a hundred eyes;
Work it in gold and silver grapes,
In leaves and silver fleurs-de-lys;
Because the birthday of my life
Is come, my love is come to me.
The times we spend together
Are the best times that I know,
I am a better person,
Because you’ve made me so.
Another year has passed and I
Could not have asked for more,
Than to spend that year with you
The one whom I adore.
How do I love thee?
Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth
Of a million birthdays.
Because today’s your special day
I want to take this chance to say
I love your kiss, I love your touch,
I love you oh so very much
