Daffodils


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.

Beautiful sunlight gives these daffodils a radiant glow and the shadows are sharp.

after their dance under the sun, the daffodils are now taking a bow toward their adoring audience...

Wordsworth sure could pen a good poem, didn't he?

Love that daffodil shadow! A very happy shot indeed.

So lovely, Wordsworth sure knew of how the daffodils danced in the sunlight casting shadows on the ground! Great shot to accompany his words! It's been a while, but we're back and happy to be here! My Shadow Shot is, of course, of my Huskies. Happy Shadow Shot Sunday!
