Spring Cleaning

I’ve been spring cleaning today, trying to reduce the amount of clutter and dust in the house and I came across a letter from someone I can barely remember, but the words touched my heart and have stayed with me forever, I was sent this poem…

Love’s Philosophy by Percy B Shelley

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?
