Text: (slightly adapted from 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 woman;
So be it when I shall grow old,
Or let me die!
The Child is mother of the Woman;
And I could wish my days to be
Bound each to each by natural piety.
