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 another being’s 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 are all these kissings worth,
If thou kiss not me?
Percy Bysshe Shelley
