My Heart Leaps Up… (Summary)

The Poem ‘My Heart Leaps Up When I Behold’ is written by William Wordsworth. He is one of the poets who started romanticism in English literature. He expressed his love towards nature in his literary works. According to him “Poetry is spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes it origin from emotions recollected in tranquility.” In this poem he recollects an experience of his childhood days and gives his emotions and feelings a meaning.

When the poet sees the rainbow in the sky, his heart becomes extremely happy. The situation was same when he was a child. He used to become happy when he saw rainbow in the sky in his child hood. The condition is still same in the present. Now the poet is an adult and his heart still becomes happy when he sees rainbow. He wants his heart to be happy in future also in the same way when he will see the rainbow. And he wishes to die if the happiness in his heart for the rainbow doesn’t remain same when he will become old in future. He thinks that the child is father of the man because a child has all the characteristics that grow along with him and become the characteristics of the man. In the same way a growing man develops the characteristics he showed as a child. So, the poet wishes to tie each of his coming days with the worship and love of nature as childhood.
