The Thursday Poem

Potted Flowers with Books IV
Eric Barjot

My Heart Leaps Up

My heart leaps up when I behold
A rainbow in the sky:
So it was when my life began;
So it is 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 to each by natural piety.

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