The Daffodils

William Wordsworth

[googly text]

I wandered lonely as a cloud
The cubs swam on mountain
I saw people
Various golden daffodils;
By the pool under the tree
Fluttering in the wind and dances.

Continuous as the stars shine
Flash light, and the Milky Way;
It is a vast stretch cord
Long-term Bay;
I saw a thousand, in a single glance
Throw the heads Quirky dance.

And the women answered as they played, and next to them was, but the waves of the
E-caused waves of light and joy;
A poet could, gay,
In such a wide range of the company,
Stared and stared at me – but would not notice
Fortune took from me?

Too often, when I’m lying in bed, satisfied poking through my tunic
The free or sought to limit
The mind’s eye lights
Fortune, like a desert;
He then fills my heart with joy;
Since we can not control 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 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 shew 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.
