I need a literary palette cleanser today. So decided to try poetry for a change of pace. Rainy afternoon and the dishes and laundry can wait awhile.
I can appreciate this poet without enjoying the poems, yes? Not my thing, taking a class on EBB would probably boost my understanding. #poetry #poetrymatters #poemaday

I have used this bookmark/tracker since starting my read-a-poem-every-day project! (2020)
The first line of this says everything at the moment!! Though this is a love sonnet, not a commentary in modern life!

Yesterday the girls and I bundled up in the sunshine and read poetry🥰
The girls: my plants ...I‘ve not been out of the house in 63 days 😳
I reread these today, probably the first time I‘ve read them straight through since junior high. Such beautiful poems, from such a romantic story. No wonder teenaged me loved them. (My edition is nowhere near this pretty.)
Final book of the year, #115. Lovely sonnets to savor alongside dark hot chocolate on a cool night. Especially moving when I think about Elizabeth Barrett Browning's life and relationship with Robert Browning.
Happy New Year, lovely Littens! 💕🎉 May y'all read lots of good books and nurture lots of good bookish friendships in the new year. ❤️😊
From an old favorite. #strong #poetrymatters @TheSpineView
#PeacefulPoetry the first thing to come to mind is this book of poetry! 😊 It‘s one of my favorites and I can just sit and read it anytime! #JazzyJune
#flowers #Poetrymatters @TheSpineView @LazyDays From an old favorite collection.
?✒️?Elizabeth Barrett Browning knew something profound about love when she wrote "I love thee withe the passion put to use/In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith." Definitely one of my favorite lines of poetry. I am celebrating this genius' birthday with this picture. What is your favorite line from any poem?

While there are a lot of poets I love, including Frank O'Hara, Elizabeth Barrett Browning is so inspiring- gorgeous poems and such a life.One of the poems from this collection was a part of my wedding vows so it's very special to me! One of her favourites in turn was Paradise lost.
Finally! I‘m glad EBB living was worth it. ❤️
This book is such a lovely thing.
Behold and see
What a great heap of grief lay hid in me,
And how the red wild sparkles dimly burn
Through the ashen greyness.
I had not expected this collection of love poems to be so melancholic. Although a degree of self-doubt and uncertainty goes along with any lover's thoughts, the tone here is of such low self-esteem, such self-recrimination that it strikes me that the poet was suffering from depression. But through the darkness, there are sparks of hope, that maybe love will come, will be true and will rescue.

Up late working on my paper on Elizabeth Barrett Browning‘s Sonnets from the Portuguese 💕📝
A Book Spine Poem. Happy Valentines Day Littens!
Elizabeth Barrett Browning is one of the greatest poets of the nineteenth century and this small collection is a wonderful example of her work. Her love poems are beautiful and expressive, showing her talent and literary sensitivity.
This was probably my #fallfavorite i loved this poetry!
Chapter #13 from this book of poems. I actually just finished this. I loved her poems and it just flows and seems so full of love.
TBR pile question: what‘s the smallest book TBR?
This little book of sonnets at 109 pages. Very short and I hope to read soon! I like the cover of this too!
My friend is asking me questions about my TBR stack to reconnect me with pile of books!
I was tagged for #deadpoetssociety by @jdtchicago At first it was difficult because so many of my favorite poets are alive; but then I had trouble limiting myself to 5. #dps5 Clockwise from top left: Elizabeth Barrett Browning, John Donne, Emily Dickinson, William Shakespeare, Maya Angelou.
So many have been tagged already, so if you haven't been, consider yourself tagged by me.
For years, my parents had a beautiful copy of Sonnet XLIII hanging near their bed.
"Let us stay rather on earth, Beloved, where the unfit contrarious moods of men recoil away and isolate pure spirits, and permit a place to stand and love in for a day." ??
#BookTubeAThon choice for 6) Book I bought for the cover. I discovered this gorgeous published in 1954 at a used book store & just had to have it! 💗🌸 Sonnets from the Portuguese by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
It's been a busy spring. I'm trying to squeeze in some reading time in a relatively quiet space that doesn't include foul balls. I started back with this one because it's one of my favorites, and it's short enough to read in one sitting, even if I get distracted a half dozen times.
Day 23 - poetry #aprilbookshowers
My sister gave me this volume of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's poetry for my 12th birthday and I thought it was one of the most beautiful book in the world. A million years later I still do. #somethingpretty #riotgrams
"The widest land doom takes to part us, leaves thy heart in mine with pulses that beat double. What I do and what I dream include thee, as wine must taste if its own grapes." #poetry #seasonsreadings
