...nothing like a dramatic sky to add to a rainbow's beauty.
(...and what a perfect way to ring out 2011 and welcome 2012--Happy New Year!)
532. The Rainbow
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;
I could wish my days to be
Bound each to each by natural piety.
