नेपालीमा अनुवाद (Translation In Nepali):

जब म हेर्छु मेरो हृदय रमाउँछ

जब म हेर्छु मेरो हृदय प्रफुल्लित भएर बुरुक्क उफ्रन्छ आकाशमा इन्द्रेणी:
मेरो जीवनको सुरुआत हुँदा यो यस्तै थियो;
अहिले म जवान मानिस हुँदा यो यस्तै छ;
म बुढो हुँदा पनि यो यस्तै हुन्छ,
अथवा मलाई मर्न देऊ !
बालक मानिसको पिता हो;
र मेरा दिनहरु रहिरहुन् भन्ने चाहना गर्थें;
प्रत्यक दिनहरु प्राकृतिक भक्तिद्दारा आवद्द भइरहुन्।
- William Wordsworth
