If thou must love me, let it be for nought

Except for love's sake only. 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, and certes brought

A sense of pleasant ease on such a day'--

For these things in themselves, Beloved, may

Be changed, or change for thee,--and love, so wrought,

May be unwrought so. Neither love me for

Thine own dear pity's wiping my cheeks dry,--

A creature might forget to weep, who bore

Thy comfort long, and lose thy love thereby !

But love me for love's sake, that evermore

Thou mayst love on, through love's eternity.

What the narrator is saying is that things can change and people can change in a relationship. She says the only way true love will last is if one learns to love for \"love\'s sake\".

This poem is beautiful. It says that Browning shouldn\'t love her because of some of the things she does, because if she changes he won\'t love her anymore. He also shouldn\'t love her because he pities her and can mop up her tears, because if she stops crying he won\'t love her. It says that he should love her purely because he loves her, and for no other reason

In Sonnet 14, Elizabeth wants guys 2 c that she is 2 b loved 4evr...not just some temporary love but true love that is not based on her beauty or just b/c he feels sorry 4 her. Outer beauty fades as u grow older, so she wanted a guy who would LOVE HER 4 HER!!! Smart chic:)LOL...

Here the poets is seeking after a true lover who would love her only for love.Normally all the guys or girls do look for some physical beauty and nobody seeks for true love.all that we think is impermament and selfish love.Though this is also a truth that the first impression is always relates with physical charmness but one must try to go beyond that attraction.Elizabeth says that love her only for the sake of love.Love is misconnected only to a sexual relationship but we can love everybody without any selfishness.Love is a must for even every creature.Animals also realize this true love. sunil harit 09929765020

you can't love somone ONLY because you have fun together, or because of physical characteristics, or because of mannerisms and personality, or because of your connection, or because of pity. Because beleive it or not, these are all fleeting and temporary. Love for the sake of love.
The perfect epitome of love, elizabeth and robert browning. Theirs will live on forever.

Malak al-hazmi
in my opinion , Elizabeth is a sensable woman who realzied the truth love is the eternal love . She does't want her beloved to love her just because she is beautiful and just to show her that he is symbethized with her for this love is changable and not eternal.

this poem is the most romantic poem of all. Elizabeth is trying to say that to love someone for how their personality is not for how they look or how they laugh or anything like that LOVE ME FOR ME AND NOT ANYTHING OR ANYBODY ELSE!

.: Analysis by Monis Akhtar :.

This is a very touching poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browinig. The poem is very personal and romatic and is a reply to the poem "Meeting at Night" by Robert Browning.

In this poem, Elizabeth is sayin that don't love me because of my smile or because of the way I write or speak. Dont love me for any sake but love's sake (inner feeling that can not be described).

Elizabeth is a paralyzed woman and is very self-aware of her condition. We see this when she says "Neither love me for
Thine own dear pity's wiping my cheeks". Here she is saying that dont love me because you pity me (making me happy and 'wiping my cheeks dry'). LOVE ME ONLY FOR THE SAKE OF LOVE AND NO OTHER.

thats my quick analysis.
thanks.
