The Galactic Pot Healer

I just finished "The Galactic Pot Healer". I really liked it. It was incredibly bizarre. While listening, I was struck by a statement - "The child is the father of the man." - and it lit me up for the rest of the day. I hoped that it was an original of Dick's, but I searched it and it's a quote from a poem of a well known individual. Without searching the webs do you know who this came from?

I'll guess Ol'Will Shakespeare or Bob Dylan.

William Wordsworth. 1770–1850

The Rainbow

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!
The Child is father of the Man;
I could wish my days to be
Bound each to each by natural piety.

Clay beat me to identifying the source of, "The child is father of the man..."
