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).
