"Hymn of Love" 1 Corinthians chapter 13

A good friend of ours, Esmea Watt, read Hymn of Love for Claire and Ferruccio during their wedding cermony.





Alicia Brown, a good friend of Claire, gave the reading: “Love’s philosophy” by Percy Bysshe Shelley

Love’s philosophy
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 a 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 are all these kissings worth
If thou kiss not me?

Gift from Giovanna to all of the girls in our family as part of an Italian tradition.
