    Has a special memory for me as I won first prize for a painting of subject about the poem of Wordsworth Daffodils.
    All English school children learn this poem, and remains in the memory a lifetime. A great poet, no doubt, but some
    epics too long for today's world. Panmelys

    Wordsworth is a poet who could make a difference in my mood, his poems are too gentle.

Best Poem of William Wordsworth

A Character

I marvel how Nature could ever find space
For so many strange contrasts in one human face:

And attention full ten times as much as there needs;

Gleamed like a vision of delight.
I started---seeming to espy
The home and sheltered bed,
The Sparrow's dwelling, which, hard by
My Father' house, in wet or dry
My sister Emmeline and I
