Percy Bysshe Shelley
The sunlight claps the earth, and the moonbeams kiss the sea: what are all these kissings worth, if thou kiss not me?
About This Quote
In the poem, "The Sunshine Claps the Earth," by William Shakespeare, a man is a lover who has a woman in his heart and in his arms. The woman in the poem loves the man, but because she is caught in a love triangle, she thinks that he is not completely hers. She thinks that he does not fully love her. In order to prove his love, she kisses him passionately.
The words “the sunshine claps the earth” refer to how much she loves him and how much he loves her. "Moonbeams kiss the sea" refers to how full of joy she feels when she kisses him. She says that these kisses are worth nothing if he does not kiss her back.
