Part I of II- A purified heart + Percy Shelley's + Zima = ???
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is a long entry and had to be split in two parts, but our contributor for this entry was very very persistent about getting to blog about something they felt very very strongly about, soooooo without further ado...)
This tip goes out to the fella we overheard lamenting to his friend at Chipolte about lady troubles.
It's from one of our self-professed-reformed female squirrels' male squirrel (you call them a "ladies' man," right?). With notes from our editorial staff.
1) Purify your heart. Females know when you're "frontin'"
(EDITOR'S NOTE: To clarify the above, make sure you are being honest with your feelings. Females can tell when you aren't being honest with them, or your self, and they don't like it.)
2)Memorize the following poem by Percy Bysshe Shelley.
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 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 is all this sweet work worth
If thou kiss not me?
(EDITOR'S NOTE: We don't get everything in this poem, but we definitely get the jist. Part II is below)
