Video Details for Daffodils by William Wordsworth

The poem "Daffodils" written in 1804 by William Wordsworth read by the actor Sir Jeremy Irons.

by William Wordsworth

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 the 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.

    Ah yes - I remember reading this in English class as well. Sure wish YouTube was around then - I probably would not have flunked out of Senior English lmao - Ironic to have done so anyway - and wind up the webmistress of a forum for writers o.O

    One of my memories of English class was that poem but all that I could remember of it was the host of golden daffodils. I have some myself every spring and love to look at them and take pictures.
    Having it read to me makes it more alive I think.
    Thanks for posting this Sis!
