Welcome to our 1st Scrap That Poetry Blog Hop!

We hope to offer some inspiration as well as introduce you to our newest DT Members! If you would like to be entered in a drawing to win a RAK from Scrap That Poetry, you must become a follower of this blog, as well as comment on each DT member's blog. When you are finished hopping, you will come back here and leave a comment that you finished the hop! The overall RAK is a $15 online gift certificate to your favorite online store.

We are posting a bonus poem in honor of this hop as well as Valentine's Day!

How Do I Love Thee
by Elizabeth Barrett Browning

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
my souls 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 breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

Scrap That Poetry was your 1st stop on the blog hop, your next stop is the owner of this challenge blog, Jennifer Campbell.

If you get lost along the way, come back here to find your next stop.
