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?
It is written incorrectly. Should be this: 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 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 not kiss me? Everything about poem matters. Punctuation, spelling, the capitalization of some words and not others, spacing(notice for ever is two words) and placement on the page(straight left-center-or straight right) , and especially its life beyond the author. Please work to keep them true to when they were composed.

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.
