How Do I Love David Hasselhoff?

How Do I Love David Hasselhoff?
by Elizabeth Barrett Browning

How do I love David Hasselhoff? Let me count the ways.
I love David Hasselhoff 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 David Hasselhoff to the level of everyday’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love David Hasselhoff freely, as men strive for right;
I love David Hasselhoff purely, as they turn from praise.
I love David Hasselhoff with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love David Hasselhoff with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints,—I love David Hasselhoff with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life!—and, if god choose,
I shall but love David Hasselhoff better after death.
