I hope everyone has some good weekend plans. I’m hoping to get some reading done but it will mainly be essay writing.
My chosen poem this week is by Percy Bysshe Shelley who was a Romantic poet of the early nineteenth century. He was married to Mary Shelley, the author of Frankenstein. He was also good friends with Lord Byron.
Love's Philosophy 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 disdained its brother; And the sunlight clasps the earth, And the moonbeams kiss the sea: What is all this work worth If thou kiss now me? Percy Bysshe Shelley
