“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 divide.
In one spirit meet and 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 disdained its brother:
And the sunlight clasp the earth,
And the moonbeams kiss the sea,
What is all this sweet work worth,
If thou kiss not me?”
-Percy B. Shelly (1792-1822)
