P. B. Shelley
CLXXXIV. 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,         5
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;  10
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 kissings worth,  15
If thou kiss not me?
