To My Dear and Loving Husband

To My Dear and Loving Husband

“To My Dear and Loving Husband” was written between 1641 and 1643 by Anne Bradstreet, America’s first published poet. This poem offers modern readers insights into Puritan attitudes toward love, marriage, and God. In the poem, Bradstreet proclaims her great love for her husband and his for her. She values their love more than any earthly riches, and she hopes that their physical union on earth signifies the continuation of their spiritual union in heaven.
