Daffodils


I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,

    I have read it hundreds of times since my childhood. It always appears fresh and new. Immortal composition. (Report) Reply

    Trees and grass
    Upon a hill
    A dandelion
    And a daffodil
    Well, a dandelion anyway
    There are no daffodils today
    But as if to somehow fill the need
    You'll always find a willing weed
    And I should know
    For I think I am
    In human form
    A dandelion (Report) Reply

    My Nana was repeating words over and over the day before she passed away. Normally sharp as a tack, today she was like a broken record with no awareness of anybody else or anything, just these words. I had spent a lot of time with her over my life and had never heard them before. She was completely immersed in a patient, persistent, struggle with the words - which was not a simple task when actively dying, at 98. AND, after hours of stumbling over and over the first and then second stanza, it appeared (to me) that she was 'creating' and I thought she was having a moment of genius. So I (frantically writing) tried to grasp these wonderful words as they trickled out. I went home to google the words I had captured and to my amazement, my Nana was not becoming a savant, she was remembering. I printed the whole poem and the next morning (April 1,2009) she was still repeating. I began to read and she became silent. I read the entire thing and she didn't speak again. I read the poem over and over as she laid silent with a huge smile - and then she died. Sometimes the greatest gifts are simply profound. (Report) Reply

    And then my heart with pleasure fills,
    And dances with the daffodils.
    _Like Wordsworth, I am delighted too. The poem entranced me just like the daffodils entranced Wordsworth. (Report) Reply

    The poesy and the expressions exude eternal values. It is simply beautiful and a masterpiece penned by the masterstroke of a great poet. (Report) Reply

    Masterpiece of all ages... Those who dare to use these words without a quotation mark and lie they are the sole authors should be 'lonely as a cloud' for the rest of their life... (Report) Reply

  • Joel Yates (6/3/2012 8:39:00 PM)

    This poem is a synecdoche where Wordsworth relates Nature as a whole to the dancing daffodils and the waves in the bay. This is truly a remarkable piece of poetry. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
