To My Dear and Loving Husband

To My Dear and Loving Husband

by Anne Bradstreet

To My Dear and Loving Husband Summary

"To My Dear and Loving Husband" begins by describing the compatibility between the speaker and her husband (and boy do we mean compatibility!). The speaker then describes how much she values her husband's love, how strong her love is, and how she will never be able to repay her husband for his love. Aww. The poem concludes with the speaker urging herself and her husband to "persevere" in their love for another so that they can live forever. Wouldn't that be nice?
