You would have had more chance of an answer if you had posted the text, or at least a link to this poem.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning wrote these poems for her future husband, Robert Browning - and eventually gave them to him on their wedding day.
In this sonnet, Elizabeth says that Robert has brought her flowers all through the year - and that the flowers always looked good in her room, almost as natural there as they looked in the gardens where they grew.
Elizabeth says she has no flowers to offer Robert, but she has her poems instead. Her poems also grow all the year round (she loves Robert all the time - aaahhh) and will also last a very long time, and look good in his heart (her love for Robert is evertrue - aahhh).
The Sonnets from the Portuguese are interesting. As poems they are OK, but nothing spectacular. They are mainly still remembered because of the big love story that goes with them (it has been made into several films - including The Barrats of Wimpole Street).
Some poems are prized not for what they are, but for their backstory.
