Shelley Sunday (On a Tuesday): ‘Love’s Philosophy’

Goodness! So I didn’t forget, but my internet access was knocked out over the weekend and was only just restored today. So here’s our boy a bit late…

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 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 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?
