Wedding Reading: Love’s Philosophy

The fountains mingle with the rivers 
And the rivers with the oceans, 
The winds of heaven mix forever 
With a sweet emotion; 
Nothing in the world is single; 
All things by 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?

- Percy Bysshe Shelley
