Daffodils the beautiful Poem by William Wordsworth

The article is about the lovely and beautiful flower daffodils, written by William Wordsworth. He was born in UK on 7th April, 1770.

The 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 sprighly dance.


The wave 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,

The flash upon that inward eye

Which is the bliss of solitude;

And then my heart with pleasure fills,

And dances with the daffodils.
