Love's Philosophy

by Percy Bysshe Shelley

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 another's being mingle--      Why not I with thine? See, the mountains kiss high heaven,      And the waves clasp one another; No sister flower could be forgiven      If it disdained its brother; And the sunlight clasps the earth,      And the moonbeams kiss the sea;-- What are all these kissings worth,      If thou kiss not me?
