Love's Philosophy
(1792-1822 / Horsham / England)

Love's Philosophy

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 another's being mingle-
Why not I with thine?

See, the mountains kiss high heaven,
And the waves clasp one another;
No sister flower could be forgiven
If it disdained 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?

No sister flower could be forgiven If it disdained its brother; beautiful
very nice. Reminded me that I am forever alone: 0
Pregnant with emotions and feelings, beautiful and bedecked.
I hate this poem, I am lonely
Though the questions were not meant to be answered, I keep thinking for answers of them! wonderful poem!
