‘My Heart Leaps up’
By 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,        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.
