My Heart Leaps Up By William Wordssworth

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 .

Leap up : to spring up
Behold :see
Rainbow : band of seven colours in the sky
Natural : existing in Nature
Piety : state of showing a deep respect

WILLIAM WORDSWORTH
