Poetry Corner #2

This weeks poem is 'I Wondered Lonely as a Cloud' By William Wordsworth. I am doing this Poem this week because I had to memorize it for my Poetry class recitation. I thought I was going to do awful at the recitation, but my poetry teacher told me after school I got the highest score in my class for my recitation. So I thought I would share it with you :D

I Wondered Lonely as a Cloud
                     by: William Wordsworth

I wondered 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 starts 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 there head 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 my heart with pleasure fills, 
And dances with the daffodils.

I hope you enjoyed the poem and that everyone has a fabulous weekend and first day of September.
