I wanted to make my first blog both relevant and special. “I Wandered Lonley as a Cloud” is one of my favorite poems by William Wordsworth. I have always adored his poetry and his message. I also really love the fact that he has the words “will” “I” “am” “words” and “worth” in his name! What a great name. 🙂
I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud BY 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 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.
