My heart leaps up : 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 …

This simple nine line poem describes how the poet is filled with joy when he sees a rainbow, and how he hopes he will always keep that sense of enchantment with the natural world. Wordsworth observes a rainbow in the sky and is filled with joy at the sight of a rainbow. a joy that was there when the poet was very young, is still there now he has attained adulthood, and – he trusts – will be with him until the end of his days. If he loses this thrilling sense of wonder, what would be the point of living? In summary, this is the essence of ‘My heart leaps up’.
