Poetic License: How Do I love Thee…………..

photography-rainbow trout-Oregon-SwittersB

“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 every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right…”

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Nothing too profound here. Perhaps it is so blatantly self-evident to me that I cannot transfer the emotions  to you…my passion for the synergy of certain fish in certain environments? The combination of visuals and the physicality of it all. The perfect moments…the moment…when it all combines and one is momentarily reaffirming the love, the passion, the lust even for a darn fish…a beautiful fish.

On an even lighter note……..

“Why does Sea World have a seafood restaurant, I wonder? I am half way through my fish burger when I realize “Oh my God, I could be eating a slow learner!”  Lynda Montgomery

“All cats love fish, but many fear to wet their paws”  Chinese Proverb

“To talk much and arrive nowhere is the same as climbing a tree to catch fish” Chinese Proverb

How do I love thee……….

oh let me count the ways…………

Release Beauty Bow SwittersB

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 candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with a 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 Barret Browning (1806 ~ 1861)

Trout Love…How Do I Love Thee

Elizabeth Barrett-Browning’s Sonnet 

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 every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
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.
