From the Writer's Almanac:

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.
