Calm circumference of bliss

“Meanwhile
We two will rise, and sit, and walk together,
Under the roof of blue Ionian weather,
And wander in the meadows, or ascend
The mossy mountains, where the blue heavens bend
With lightest winds, to touch their paramour;
Or linger, where the pebble-paven shore,
Under the quick, faint kisses of the sea,
Trembles and sparkles as with ecstasy–
Possessing and possess’d by all that is
Within that calm circumference of bliss,
And by each other, till to love and live
Be one: — ”

~ P. B. Shelley,
‘Epipsychidion’
