Shelley poem (as seen on TV!)

Wondering about the rest of that lovely Shelley poem from last weekend’s episode of Inspector Lewis?

Here it is (from Bartelby.com):

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 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 disdain’d its brother;
And the moonbeams kiss the sea-
What are all these kissings worth,
If thou kiss not me?

Sigh. How lovely. Now I might have to read more poetry. Stupid TV encouraging reading (shakes fist at screen).
