I wandered lonely as a cloud

Asalamalaikum Everyone,

 Being new to the blogging world means I also get to check out posts by other bloggers, and might I say there is such a rich range out there ! Thanks to Caitlin who shared her favorite poem, which inspired my own interest in poetry. Maybe Ill add a section dedicated to poetry on this blog too. Here it is below:

I wandered lonely as a cloud

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 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.

As always you’re welcome to share your thoughts, maybe you can even introduce me to your own favorite poems.

Until next time,
