the fountains mingle with the river
and the river with the ocean
the winds of heaven mix forever
with a sweet emotion
nothing in the world is single
all thing by law divine
in one another’s being mingle
why not i with thine?
see the mountains kiss high heaven
and the weaves clasp one another
no sister flower would be forgiven
if it disdained its brother
and sunlight clasps the earth
and the moonbeams kiss the sea
what are all these kissings worth
if thou kiss not me?
