‘Daffodils’ by William Wordsworth

‘Daffodils’
William Wordsworth
.
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 so 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 the inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.
