Sonnet VI from Sonnets from the Portuguese (1850)


The Rhyme Maker
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
1806-1861


Theme:  Love and Romance

Special Rhyme List:  Audios/Videos


Notes:
Here is a fine example of a wine poem that receives that designation due to the strength of a single metaphor. Besides, a selection of poems under the theme “Love and Romance” must include a drop from Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s Sonnets from the Portuguese as surely as “wine must taste of its own grapes.”

Another sonnet from this collection (#43) has the most famous opening line in English literature: “How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.”
- S. H. Bass

Go from me. Yet I feel that I shall stand
Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861)                           Reading of Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Go from me. Yet I feel that I shall stand
Henceforward in thy shadow. Nevermore
Alone upon the threshold of my door
Of individual life, I shall command
The uses of my soul, nor lift my hand
Serenely in the sunshine as before,
Without the sense of that which I forbore –
Thy touch upon the palm. 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 the wine
Must taste of its own grapes. And when I sue
God for myself, He hears that name of thine,
And sees within my eyes the tears of two.
