I Wandered Lonely As a Cloud by William Wordsworth


1 I wandered lonely as a cloud
2 That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
3 When all at once I saw a crowd,
4 A host of golden daffodils
5 Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
6 Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.


7 Continuous as the stars that shine
8 And twinkle on the milky way,
9 They stretched in never-ending line
10 Along the margin of a bay:
11 Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
12 Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.


13 The waves beside them danced; but they
14 Outdid the sparkling waves in glee;
15 A poet could not but be gay,
16 In such a jocund company;
17 I gazed - and gazed - but little thought
18 What wealth the show to me had brought:


19 For oft, when on my couch I lie
20 In vacant or in pensive mood,
21 They flash upon that inward eye
22 Which is the bliss of solitude;
23 And then my heart with pleasure fills;
24 And dances with the daffodils.
