My Heart Leaps Up When I Behold A Rainbow in the Sky

My heart leaps up when I behold
A rainbow in the sky:
So was it when my life began;Rainbow_02
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.

William Wordsworth




We’ve been pretty lucky lately in Denton. I think I’ve seen four rainbows in the last 3 weeks. And each time I see one, my heart does leap up. For a second, I’m seven years old again, sitting on the kitchen steps looking the rainbow, marvelling at God’s creation. I have to agree with Wordsworth. If there ever comes a day when I no longer see the beauty of the rainbow, or it doesn’t bring a smile  to my face, let me die.
