I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud

by William Wordsworth (1770 – 1850) ~ A Poem I can’t resist to share here.

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 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 leaves in glee;

A poet could not be but 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.

      May Allah bless us all. ameen

  1. Wordsworth may seem like an old-fogie Romantic poet (compared with, say, Shelley or Keats), but I really enjoy his work. “I Wandered…” and especially “…Tintern Abbey” are lovely stuff, imagery and word choice, musicality and all. And this one is just perfect for Spring. Thanks for sharing it!
