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?

by Percy Bysshe Shelley

This piece is so soothing Ernestine, dream-like quality. Love, Andrew xx
Ernestine - Calming the beat of the heart, unless it's be bop, which gives me cardiac arrest! Not really kidding, read my 'Be Quiet Please' and see if you agree. This is well written! Thanks - Cheryl Lynn Moyer
