Happy Valentine's Day Weekend!

How romantic would it be to recite a classic love poem to your dear love?

TBS to the rescue!

Here is a link to a collection of the world's most famous sonnets and such! A great idea would be to read poems whilst devouring strawberries and sipping Prosecco.

Very chic, fun and inexpensive.

I've included my favorite sonnets below.
Do you have one?

Sonnets from the Portuguese 43: How Do I Love Thee
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 candlelight.
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.

- Elizabeth Barrett Browning
