Love’s Philosophy By Percy Bysshe Shelley

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 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 disdain’d its brother:
And the sunlight clasps the earth,
And the moonbeams kiss the sea-
What are all these kissing’s worth,
If thou kiss not me?

Mingle : mix
Clasp : hold tightly
Disdained : hated
Worth : value

PERCY BYSSHE SHELLEY
