Hi,

My mother fell in love with a poem as a young girl. I want to give her the poem for her birthday. She'll be 72 on Friday 6/9/2000.  The poem is called "The Daffodils" and it begins with the line, "I wandered lonely as a cloud.." We do not know the author. Does  anyone recognize it?  I would sincerely appreciate some help.  Thank you, Sallie (blitz62@home.com)

Here it is!

Daffodils
by
William Wordsworth


I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on 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 spritely 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 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.
