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 being mingle-

Why not I with thine?

 

See the mountains kiss heaven

And the waves clasp one another,

No sister-flower would be forgiven

If it disdain’d its brother:

And the sunlight clasps the earth,

And the moonbeams kiss the sea

What are all these kissing worth

If thou kiss not me?
