Summary of "My Heart Leaves up When I Behold"

This poem is composed by William Wordsworth, a famous English poet. This poem is about the pleasure felt by the poet when he sees a rainbow. This pleasure and happiness has been the same for the whole of the poet’s like. The poet hopes he will still feel the same when he sees the rainbow when he is an old man. When this feeling stops it is better to die. The child is father of the man is a paradox in this poem. It means the things we do as children and feels as children affect and control our feeling when we are old. It also tells about life cycle. The poet remembers his past days when he sees the rainbow. The poet hopes that love of god and love of nature will be with him everyday.
