    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

    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

    the poem celebrates Shelley's sense of oneness of human beings with Nature... the immortality and universality of the passion of love by which all minds are agitated and all existence is continued in motion! ! ! (Report) Reply

    If thou kiss not me?

    The line is enough to die for love. But the word 'Thou' is the toughest word to break its a single petal. Where and how could we get that 'Thou'! Really, such the way a poem becomes of all the ages of the great poets. (Report) Reply

    sir percy;

    those nature's attributes
    are there for emulating
    to enjoy fruits of trying
    i know somebody's heart
    is attach to her lips
    worthy for kissing (Report) Reply
