Nota Selamat Menyambut Harijadi SH


Hari ini genab dua puluh empat tahun usia mu.  Happy Birthday, sayang.

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 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 great,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! …. and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

By:  Elizabeth Barrett Browning
