I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud
a poem 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.

Rainy night

One thousand stars

I too am impressed with all of the quotes you post. How is it that you are so well versed? Maybe you are a teacher?

I think that, more than even the images you post, I like the captioning in song/prose/poem that you choose. I'd love to know how you are so familiar with these old and new works/words.

De bien belles photos prisent, il me semble, dans une salle peut être de ce concert, en tout les cas, bien en relation avec ce poème et le titre de la chanson de MIKE OLDFIELD que je connais également.
Il semble d'ailleur à ce sujet que nous ayons les mêmes goûts musicaux !
Bonne continuation.
