John Constable

My heart leaps up when I behold
  A rainbow in the sky:
So was it when my life began,
So it is now I am a man,
So be it when I shall grow old,
   Or let me die!
The child is the father of the man;
And I could wish my days to  be
Bound each to each by natural piety.
                                      "The Rainbow" (1802)
                                       William Wordsworth
