Poetry With Heart

My most recent foray in writing poetry started with all things naughty, however my intitial love of poetry began with this piece …

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?

Love’s Philosophy by Percy Byshee Shelley
I fell in love with words that spoke to me, that touched me, words that prompted me to reflect upon what inspired me and what moved me. More often than not those things are people, and once in while I write something with my heart and not with my dirty mind.
