Poem of the day

Love’s Philosophy
by Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822)

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 is all this sweet work worth,
   If thou kiss not me?
