Love’s Philosophy Shelley

Published by at 8:47 am under P.B.Shelley Love Poems

Love’s Philosophy

 Percy Bysshe Shelley

The fountains mingle with the river,
And the rivers with the ocean;
The winds of heaven mix forever
With a sweet emotion;
Nothing in the world is single;
All things by a law divine
In another’s being mingle–
Why not I with thine?

See, the mountains kiss high heaven,
And the waves clasp one another;
No sister flower could be forgiven
If it disdained its brother;
And the sunlight clasps the earth,
And the moonbeams kiss the sea;–
What are all these kissings worth,
If thou kiss not me?

    I like how everything is related to the way someone feels towards someone else. Interesting…

    Simplistic explanation:

    Love is part of nature.

    The author and his beloved are part of nature.

    Let the human enjoy love as does nature.

    A fine gentleman I have come to know , Kevin, sent me this poem. After reading it I felt, for the first time in 5 years, that I could love and be loved again. It is so amazing that the beauty of verse could be powerful enough to break down the walls that have been protecting my healing heart for so long. Sadly I can never tell him because he is in a relationship but I shall always love him for that, secretly!………..

    [I]everyone belongs to someone.. ?[/I]

    the piece is at once transcendental and elemental, seperation between which is only ideational. the poet sees the gross elements (human body and mind) as manifestations of their subtle essences and creates the imagery of one pining perennially for the other, they,of course, being one and the same. embodied individual consciousness, though one with the universal consciousness, always appears pining for the other, this being the philosophy of Shelly\’s \’love\’. in [I]null[/I]

    She wants to be with him but he doesnt want to be with her. She feels that he is her \”soulmate\” and that he belongs to her. She see\’s other couples showing each other affection and wishes that with herself and him.

    Deirdre Taylor, you’re just like the person in the poem, its really upsetting. You want the guy but he doesn’t want you, maybe he sent you the poem to laugh at you because you want him, yet he doesn’t want you.

    Hhahahaha, prettttyyy fun! Anyways, please find another man =]

    “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 devine
    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 sunlight clasps the earth,
    And the moonbeams kiss the sea –
    What are all these kissings worth,
    If thou kiss not me?

    By Percy Bysshe Shelley.

    :love: i like it…

    Check out the biblical metaphors in the poem,
    John 7: 38, and Revelation 22. The poem is much more potent, in its images, but still….mmmm.

    PB Shelley is a super prick-a-dilly.
    Who isn’t so silly nor willy nilly?

    So, then,..
    Let’s just mingle in the pringle,
    with a jingle up the fingle.

    Let’s just “Let it be.
    United and lovely,
    in a perfectly imagined
    matrimonial cerimonial
    bondingly admirable
    “Allickly trendable”
    Prickly pearable,
    duo pairable,
    Kissingly
    Inspirational,
    BP Shelley type
    doohicky do-able
    Lovable Reality
