For alice :I wandered lonely as a cloud --William Wordsworth





zhybsc
Quote:
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.

Continous as the stars that shine
And twinkle in the milky way,
They stetched 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
Outdid 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 in ward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

That's a great poem.


I think I have read it long back somewhere...
Maybe it was there in my old English textbook.

Good one.

This is from my favorite wordsworth, tintern abbey:

Quote:
For I have learned
To look on nature, not as in the hour
Of thoughtless youth; but hearing oftentimes
The still, sad music of humanity,
Nor harsh nor grating, though of ample power
To chasten and subdue. And I have felt
A presence that disturbs me with the joy
Of elevated thoughts; a sense sublime
Of something far more deeply interfused,
Whose dwelling is the light of setting suns,
And the round ocean and the living air,
And the blue sky, and in the mind of man;


When I read it I feel myself elevated:) It's so beautiful...
