My Heart Leaps Up

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.
