My heart leaps up when I behold

by William Wordsworth

 

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.
