William Wordsworth Daffodils

    I Wandered lonely as a cloud
    That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
    When all at once I saw a crowd,
    A host, of golden daffodils;
    Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
    Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
    Continuous as the stars that shine
    And twinkle on the milky way,
    They stretched in never-ending line
    Along the margin of the bay:
    Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
    Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.
    The waves beside them danced; but they
    Out-did the sparkling waves in glee
    A poet could not but be gay,
    In such a jocund company
    I gazed — and gazed — but little thought
    What wealth the show to me had brought:
    For oft, when on my couch I lie
    In vacant or in pensive mood,
    They flash upon that inward eye
    Which is the bliss of solitude;
    And then my heart with pleasure fills,
    And dances with the daffodils.
    This poem inspires me especially when i go to the lake district on holiday. I love the description and how it celebrates nature. The poem forces you to relax as you read it, and you are carried to a place you love, which could be anywhere. I took some photographs in the Lake district inspired by this poem for my second term assignment.
