Knitted Daffodils... I Wander'd lonely as a cloud

As a child I had to learn this poem off by heart at school, needless to say I can't remember it now!   For oft I lie on my couch in a vacant or pensive mood!  ( Some may say a little too oft!)

"Daffodils" (1804)
I WANDER'D 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 stretch'd 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.

By William Wordsworth (1770-1850).


  1. I adore knitted flowers, there is something very special about them dont you think ? :)

  2. I love that poem too. Daffodils are just so cheering and bright aren't they. I have a book of knitted and crochet flowers,but can't knit at the moment because of Tendonitis, boohoo :(

  3. If you're taking on projects, I'll take a vase of knitted red tulips please ;)

  4. Oh my! Crocheted daffies! I am so impressed by you knitter/crochet types.



I appreciate and enjoy reading all of the feedback from your comments. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and sharing your thoughts. Sadly I have found it necessary to enable word verification, something I was trying to avoid...but I am receiving an unmanageable deluge of Spam! We don't want that do we? xxx :)
