Love's Philosophy...

"Love's Philosophy"
I   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? --

II  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?
