A Quote by William Wordsworth on beginning, children, death, fatherhood, heart, life, and wishes

My heart leaps up when I behold A rainbow in the sky: So was it whaen 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.
