Fav Quote Friday: Shelley's Ode To Divine Connectivity



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



  ...from Love's Philosophy

Here is the poem in it's entirety:

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 another's spirit 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 clasps the earth,
And the moonbeams kiss the sea -
What are all these kissings worth
If thou kiss not me?
