April 26, 2012 is National Poem in your Pocket Day.
Here’s the poem in my pocket today. One I’d like to get to know better. In the process of sharing it I hope to commit it to memory.
My Heart Leaps Up by 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!
The Child is father of the Man;
And I could wish my days to be
Bound each to each by natural piety.
