Love's Philosophy


The fountains mingle with the river,
And the rivers with the ocean;
The winds of heaven mix forever

    The first paragraph is better and more meaningful than the second. A shifting rhyme scheme fits nicely with this one and gives the reader pause making them think more deeply on the poets words. It just seems sweet and lacks giving the reader much emotion of their own. The poet seems to imply that him and his love are apart but never identifies with what is causing the separation. Humans tend to hold onto anger. Keeping that fact in mind, to make this poem stronger would be to place blame on someone for keeping the lovers apart. This would allow the reader to get involved with the story and create true emotion that would last longer and help them give the poem a significant place in their minds. (Report) Reply

    great poem, showing how all nature is connected with the great love of God. Nature is a product of the love of God! (Report) Reply

    It is a beautiful poem from the great poet and the connectivity of different things of nature in perfect unison is really amazing and wonderfully created poem on this. (Report) Reply

    But we have learnt to build walls, dams to prevent rivers from flowing, boundaries with mines on no mans land to prevent men or beasts from crossing over and some day we will also prevent winds from blowing freely as divine love no longer exists on this planet (Report) Reply

    One of the most beautiful and timeless pieces of literary creation by Shelly. It will outlast eternity in the heart of lovers. Truly amazing flight of imagination and unbridled romance. I just love this poem. (Report) Reply

    Shelley deems it very necessary for one to sincerely love his or neighbour. For if inanimate interact in such a lovely manner, how much more man? Whosoever hates his fellow man should be hung a millstone and thrown into the sea. Shelley is also revealing that no man is an island, as well as every other creatures in life.. This poem is quite amazing. Cheers! (Report) Reply

    Lovely love philosophy...his chosen words are at the rhythm of nature his descriptions on nature is worth to read, whether it is cloud or any here in this poem he talked about the binary world, It is not fair to exclude and a lovely demand with reference to nature /So softly so lightly the philosophy (Report) Reply

    Liebes-Gedankenspiel

    Nach Percy Bysshe Shelley:
    Love’s Philosophy

    I.

    Die Quellen mischen sich im Flusse,
    Flüsse, ozeanumschlungen,
    Im Wind der Weite wie beim Kusse
    Himmlisch willenlos bezwungen;
    Gottes Schöpfung wohnt es inne:
    Niemand sinnt, allein zu sein.
    Warum nur ist unsrer Sinne
    Keiner Dein und mein?

    II.

    Wenn die Höhn mit Wolkenflüssen,
    Wenn so nahe sich die Wogen,
    Geschwisterlich die Blumen küssen –
    Meer zum Land selbst hingezogen,
    Sonnetrunken, mondverklärt,
    Eins das andre küssen müßt’:
    Was ist alles Küssen wert,
    Wenn Du mich nicht küßt? (Report) Reply

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
