how t’Luv

Number 43, from Sonnets from the Portuguese, with apologies to Elizabeth Barrett Browning.

How do we love thee? Let us count the ways.
We love thee as grand as our lenders’ cheers
When they fund a loan and allay borrower fears
And make the world a slightly better place.
We love thee as the countless food and farms
Are raised and built by borrowers who strive.
We love thee, as they venture to thrive;
We love thee, as they keep their families warm.
We love thee with a passion that is matched
By our belief in the power of our endeavor
We love thee with a love that’s hatched
Over many years. — We shall love thee forever,
Borrowers, lenders, all! — and, if we stay attached,
We know when we will stop: never.
