Daffodils | William Wordsworth (I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud)

VIDEO Daffodils (I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud) by William Wordsworth  (1770 – 1850)
Read by Cecilia Elise Wallin

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.

  1. What a beautiful poem! I always loved reading poems, but could never create them that well. I’ll definitely be passing this one along, thanks for sharing!

    Wordsworth is one of my favorite poets. I actually wrote a song based off of one of his pieces.

    This is a nice poem. It really evokes and image and I like the cadence of it. =)
