Love's philosophy

The Fountains mingle with the river               Correm as fontes ao rio
And the rivers with the ocean,                      os rios correm ao mar;
The winds of heaven mix for ever                 num enlace fugidio
With a sweet emotion;                                 prendem-se as brisas no ar...
Nothing in the world is single,                      Nada no mundo é sòzinho:
All things by a law devine                             por sublime lei do Céu,
In one another's being mingle -                     tudo frui noutro carinho...
Why not I with thine?                                  Não hei-de alcançá-lo eu?

See the mountains kiss high heaven            Olha os montes adorando
And the waves clasp one another;              o vasto azul, olha as vagas
No sister-flower would be forgiven            uma a outra se osculando
If it disdain'd its brother:                            todas abraçando as fragas...
And the sunlight clasps the earth,               Vivos rútilos desejos,
And the moonbeams kiss the sea -            no sol ardente os verás:
What are all these kissings worth,              --Que me fazem tantos beijos,
If thou kiss not me?                                   se tu a mim mos não dás?

Shelley
