Poemaday #7


I've been planning a long-waited-for trip to the Lake District in England, so I thought it would be appropriate if I memorized some Wordsworth today:



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.
