I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud (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 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.

    The poem is written in a lucid way.His choice of simple but powerful words enhance the quality of his work.The whole poem carries one away, picturising the poet's imaginations
    in one's mind.His poetical verve is quite different from that of other English poets.

    A wonderful poem by Wordsworth written in a lucid way.His poetical verve is quite different from that of other poets.His whole imagination comes to portray the reality!

    What a delectable poem, so rich in its description that I could see it while I read it. You just can't beat Wordsworth!

    The poem gets you carried away overwhelmed by the vivid pictures put classically in the words

    the poem is very nice liked it is good and also video my favourite stanza is
    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.
