Love’s Philosophy

The fountains mingle with the river,  

And the rivers with the ocean;  

The winds of heaven mix forever,  

With a sweet emotion;  

Nothing in the world is single;  

All things by a law divine  

In one another’s being mingle;

—   Why not I with thine?

See! the mountains kiss high heaven,  

And the waves clasp one another;

No sister flower would be forgiven,  

If it disdained it’s brother;  

And the sunlight clasps the earth,  

 And the moonbeams kiss the sea;

—   What are all these kissings worth,  

If thou kiss not me?

by Percy Bysshe Shelley (1803-1822)
