"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         

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.

William Wordsworth
