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 one another’s being 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 it’s brother;
And the sunlight clasps the earth,
And the moonbeams kiss the sea;–
What are all these kissings worth,
If thou kiss not me?

    Of the three great Romantic poets–Byron, Shelley and Keats, I prefer Shelley as he was not only a great poet but also a social reformer (and superb essayist)  who wanted a more just world for his fellow human beings.   Shelley is very important in setting seeds for non-violent protests (ie Gandhi) in later years.  Really, he's a prophet before his time.  Love the guy.Just wish he had taken up painting instead of sailing as we need more of his courageous type in a cowardly world.

    Epic beyond words
    Unless they are Percy Bysshe Shelley's words

    What many fail to realize is what this poem is truly about–especially when you look at Shelley's background. This is a pickup line. He is basically saying, everything in the world comes in two. If you don't hook up with me, there is something wrong with you; we need to be together so we can be like nature. Sad really…
