Francis T. Palgrave, ed. (1824–1897). The Golden Treasury.  1875.
 
W. Wordsworth
 
CCLXXXVI. "My heart leaps up when I behold"
 
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         5
    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.
