I wandered lonely as a cloud

February 24, 2016

 

I am falling more and more in love with this beautiful, well known poem as I hear my eight year old learning it off by heart.

There is nothing better for the mind and soul then a walk in nature, and walking by yourself keeps all your senses open. A crowd of daffodils by the side of the lake would be such a beautiful sight. To gaze and gaze but little thought, what wealth the show to me had brought, to be completely in the present moment and to appreciate the beauty, feeling the connection and oneness with the nature all around you.

To later sit in meditation and look upon your inward eye, feeling the bliss of solitude and fill your heart with Joy.

If only all homework was this much fun! 

 

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.
