“My Heart Leaps Up When I Behold” – 25 Apr 2006

Since my schooldays, William Wordsworth has been one of my favorite poets.

Here is one of his poems that I find especially beautiful:

“My Heart Leaps Up When I Behold”
By William Wordsworth (1770-1850)

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.

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
