Daffodils by william wordsworth

  1. 1. DAFFODILS (1815) A POEM BYWILLIAM WORDSWORTH
  2. 2. Introduction (about the poem):• The inspiration for the poem came from a walk he took with his sister Dorothy around Glencoyne Bay, Ullswater, in the Lake District on April 15, 1802, came across a "long belt" of daffodils.• Written in 1804, it was first published in 1807 in Poems in Two Volumes, and a revised version, the more commonly known, was released in 1815.• It consists of four six-line stanzas, in iambic tetrameter and an ABABCC rhyme scheme.• Well known, and often anthologised, "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud" is commonly seen as a classic of English romanticism within poetry.
  3. 3. I wandered lonely as a cloud
  4. 4. That floats on high oer vales and hills,
  5. 5. When all at once I saw a crowd,
  6. 6. A host, of golden daffodils;
  7. 7. Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
  8. 8. Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
  9. 9. Continuous as the stars that shine
  10. 10. And twinkle on the milky way,
  11. 11. They stretched in never-ending line
  12. 12. Along the margin of a bay:
  13. 13. Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
  14. 14. Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.
  15. 15. The waves besidethem danced;
  16. 16. but theyOut-did the sparkling waves in glee:
  17. 17. A poet could not but be gay, In such a jocund company:
  18. 18. I gazed--and gazed--but little thoughtWhat wealth the show to me had brought:
  19. 19. For oft, when on my couch I lie In vacant or in pensive mood,
  20. 20. In vacant or in pensive mood, They flash upon that inward eye In vacant or in pensive mood,They flash upon that inward eye
  21. 21. Which isthe bliss ofsolitude;
  22. 22. And then my heart with pleasure fills, And dances with the daffodils.
