Love's Philosophy

by Percy Bysshe 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 another's being mingle--

Why not I with thine?

See, the mountains kiss high heaven,

And the waves clasp one another;

No sister flower could be forgiven

If it disdained its brother;

And the sunlight clasps the earth,

And the moonbeams kiss the sea;--

What are all these kissings worth,

If thou kiss not me?

Edward and I send our sweetest wishes for a very romantic St. Valentine's Day!!


  1. I love Nature's voice through Shelley in this poem. It all sounds very logical to me!

  2. Shelly's beautiful words for the weekend of love, Pamela.
    I would also like to thank you for commenting on my post for Renee's birthday. Often, when you do posts like that, people don't comment so many thanks for your support. XXXX

  3. Dear Pamela, Your choice of poem to mark St. Valentine's Day is perfect. I do so hope that you have the loveliest of days.

  4. Beautiful
    Always one of my favorites♥
    Happy Valentine's Day♥

  5. Such a lovely poem to send our way. I just knew you would have a meaningful post for Valentine's Day, Pamela.

  6. Awww...that Edward, ever the romantic ball of winter white fluff!

    The best to he and you!

  7. Happy Valentines Day to you!

    I am so sad. Sometime last year, I used one of the photos you posted as my computer wallpaper and it made me so happy every day when i logged on. My computer got sick and had to be "re-imaged" and it the process the photo was lost.

    I love the beautiful art you post -almost as much as your incredible written prose. Now I will be watching every post of the perfect illustration. I'll be looking for the perfect photo. One that can inspire - even when the office is in chaos!

  8. And I want to wish the same to you !!


  9. Dear Pamela
    Hope you day is filled with love and romance.. Edward's too xx Julie

  10. And the same to you. Wonderful choice of poem.

  11. One of the sweetest, most romantic poems (and one of my top Romantic poets), thank you for Shelley's sweet reminder.

    Love, X, poetry

  12. Happy Valentine's Day to you and Edward as well!

  13. I can't help feeling that the lady in the picture does look rather like you Pamela. Have a lovely romantic day too.
