Love's Philosophy


The fountains mingle with the river

        And the rivers with the Ocean,

The winds of Heaven mix for ever

        With a sweet emotion;

Nothing in the world is single;

        All things by a law divine

In one spirit meet and 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 its brother;

And the sunlight clasps the earth

        And the moonbeams kiss the sea:

What is all this sweet work worth

        If thou kiss not me?


                          Percy Bysshe Shelley
