News at Eleven: Do not say/'I love her

for her smile . . . her look . . . her way/Of speaking gently, . . . for a trick of thought/That falls in well with mine/. . . For these things, in themselves, Beloved, may/Be changed, or change for thee, . . . and love so wrought,/May be unwrought . . ./But love me for love's sake that evermore/Thou mays't love on, through love's eternity."

The romance, and marriage in 1846 of Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning was one of the great love stories of the Victorian period. They married in secret, because Mr. Barrett had forbidden any of his children to marry.

from Pune Mirror: How do I love thee?
