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 fogiven
If it disdained it's brother
And the sunlight clasps the earth
And the moon beams kiss the sea;
What is all this sweet work worth
If thou kiss not me?

-Percy Bysshe Shelly
