The Daffodils


daffidils 005

I wander’d 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 tress,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretch’d in never-ending line
Along the margin of a 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

– William Wordsworth.

I love this poet.
Have a wonderful Spring y’all πŸ™‚

  1. Love this! Yeah, there’s just something about the daffodils when they’re in bloom, don’t you think? We have them lining the driveway. My grandmother planted them many many moons ago. πŸ˜‰

    • With the Spring season here,Taking all those winter coats and jackets off and take a walk in the garden really feels good with those daffodils in their bloom.I feel rejuvenated and alive πŸ™‚
