I. Nature’s Influence
“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,        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.
