William Wordsworth: "Rainbow; My heart leaps up when I behold"

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!

William Blake: "Sick Rose" (from Songs of Experience) (1)

O Rose thou art sick.The invisible worm,That flies in the nightIn the howling storm:Has found out thy bedOf crimson joy:And his dark secret loveDoes thy life destroy.
Diction:
The poet's language is simple and expressive.
