Shelly (in a Romanticism Mood Now)

Love's Philosophy by Percy 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 one another's being mingle:-
    Why not I with thine?

See! the mountains kiss high heaven,
    And the waves clasp one another;
Now sister flower would be forgiven
    If it disdained 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?
