Love's Philosophy


In honor of Valentine's Day, I wanted to share with you one of my favorite poems. 

Love is beautiful--and I encourage you to live each day of your life with passion, patience, happiness and eternal optimism. Be kind, be generous, be faithful, be humble, be gracious, express your loveliest thoughts and always share your joy.


Love's Philosophy

by Percy Bysshe Shelley

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 spirit meet and 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 is all this sweet work worth
   If thou kiss not me?
