My Heart Leaps Up When I Behold

My Heart Leaps Up When I Behold

  

by William Wordsworth

My Heart Leaps Up When I Behold Questions

Bring on the tough stuff - there’s not just one right answer.

  1. What, for you, is like the speaker's rainbow? What has moved your heart since you were little, and will hopefully move you until you die?
  2. Why do you think the speaker says "let me die?" Can you identify with this feeling? 
  3. Do you agree with the speaker that the child is the father of the man? Why or why not?
  4. What is your interpretation of the phrase "natural piety"?
  5. How does this poem exemplify, or not, the Romantic period of art and literature?
