Love Letter - Anne Bradstreet

Snow was kind enough to share this wonderful Poem and decided to post it instead of another a Love Letter this week ;) Anne Dudley Bradstreet (c. 1612 – September 16, 1672) was an English-American writer, the first published American poet, and the first woman to be published in Colonial America. Her work was very influential to Puritans in her time. To my Dear and Loving Husband If ever two were one, then surely we. If ever man were lov'd by wife, then thee. If ever wife was happy in a man, Compare with me, ye women, if you can. I prize thy love more than whole Mines of gold Or all the riches that the East doth hold. My love is such that Rivers cannot quench, Nor ought but love from thee give recompetence. Thy love is such I can no way repay. The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray. Then while we live, in love let's so persever That when we live no more, we may live ever.

For Fahad :*
