“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?
