The Thursday Poem

My Heart Leaps Up

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 gor old,
Or let me die!
The Child is father of the Man;
And I wish my days to be
Bound each to each by natural piety

William Wordsworth
(7th April 1770 - 23rd April 1850)

from the book: Poem for the Day One
