Weekend Poem to Consider: ‘The Best Thing in the World’ by Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Happy Sunday Everyone!

I am thinking about starting a “Weekend Poem to Consider” category which I will post each weekend. I won’t analyze the poem; instead I will keep it simple and note why I like it and want to share it.

The Best Thing in the World

I like this poem because the tone is happy and the author is expressing what she considers to be a few of ‘the best things in the world’ to her. There are many and they vary, from the things she sees and experiences to happy memories and love returned. It is about being in this world and enjoying life and I think this resonates with all of us.

Have you read this Poem?

Are you a fan of Elizabeth Barrett Browning yourself?

What would you consider ‘The Best Thing in the World’?

  1. I have now 🙂
    a bit confusing
    no, haven’t read much of her (too chicky)
    the best thing in the world is being alive and enjoying every new moment as gift that’s only now being unwrapped and explored. as Master Oogway said so wisely on Kung Fu Panda, “…that’s they call it The Present” -KIA
