Daffodils


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

    John Kuhlman: What a sad tale you tell about a misguided teacher!
    It's a pity you allowed her to have such an influence on you, but it is not too late to discover a love of poetry, which will surely enrich your remaining years!
    Courage, mon brave, and keep reading!
    This poem is incredibly Wordsworthian, not just because of Wordsworth's love of nature, but because of the belief it expresses that the memory of such defining moments as he describes here can alleviate times when we feel cut off from everything that enriches us and makes life seem worthwhile.

    I had just gotten out of the Army and returned to college in the summer of 1946. I had to take a course in English Literature which included this poem. The teacher asked me to explain the poem to the class. So I started-it is about these beautiful flowers. She said I was wrong-it is about growing old. Later I had a friend who taught English Literature, and I asked him the following question. 'Can't that poem mean one thing to a young man who may never have seen a daffodil and something entirely different when he is 65 years old? ' He said 'of course.' Here I am,85 years old and I have, on many occasions, used the last verse in memorial services for my friends. With that one question, that teacher killed any fancy that might have developed in my mind for poetry. (Report) Reply

    It was annoying not to be able to remember some lines of this well loved poem, learnt long ago in school.Memories are also of the beautiful Lake district where the romantic poets penned their beautiful poems.I love going back there. As for the poem I just had to look it up and felt relieved to find it in its entirety and to find others enjoyed it so much too made me feel good. (Report) Reply

    I had to memorize this poem when in the eighth grade. I am 62 yrs old now, and I still love the rythemic way it reads. (Report) Reply

    This is a favourite from childhood when I sang it as a song called 'I wandered Lonely as a cloud' I am now 64 and I still knew most of the words. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
