Hi, I think I can help you out :)


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 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.

And welcome to the forum :wave:

Hello, and welcome, tjoanne.
You have searched for one of my favorite poems in Romanticism, and by a particularly wonderful poet, William Wordsworth. Some poems, I think, never grow too old to lose meaning, compassion, and amusement, and several poems among the era of Romanticism, Realism, and transcendentalism remain among them, though contemporary poetry also has much to offer.
Anyway, I think I have rambled for long enough, but hopefully we will see you around the forums! :nod:
