My Heart Leaps Up

William Wordsworth, 1770 - 1850

My heart leaps up when I behold 
    A rainbow in the sky:

So was it when my life began; 
So is it now I am a man; 
So be it when I shall grow old, 
    Or let me die!

The Child is father of the Man;

And I could wish my days to be
   Bound each to each by natural piety.
