Percy Bysshe Shelley -- 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 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 is all this sweet work worth,
If thou kiss not me?

I don't, for who then will write sweet songs?

We look before and after and pine for what is not
Our sincerest laughter with some pain is fraught
Our sweetest songs are those that sing of saddest thought...

Another PBS. :)
