The poet says that once he was enjoying and idle wandering. He was moving like a cloud which sails freely in the air over mountains and valleys. All of a sudden, he caught sight of a vast field of golden daffodils. They were growing along the bank of a lake, under shady groves of trees. They were waving their heads in the cool breeze. They were spread in unending lines like the countless stars in the galaxy.
Daffodils were dancing merrily in the fresh and fragrant morning breeze. He was so much lost in joy that he could not know what a great wealth of thought and feeling had been given to him by the scene for the years to come. That scene is no more now. But the memory of that scene keeps him happy even today in the sad and lonely hours of his life. Whenever he remembers that scene his heart is filled with pleasure and starts dancing imaginatively with the daffodils.
This is one of the most famous poems of Wordsworth. He wrote this poem in the early phase of his poetry. Those days, he used to have long idle wandering in fields and forests, mountains and valleys, in search of natural beauty. The poem reflects his deep love for Nature.
This poem daffodils is a lyrical poem in which the poet is really very interested in nature. In this poem the poet describes nature very beautifully. And also a lovely part of nature -daffodils. The poet says that the daffodils were looking so much pleasing to him that he thought that none of the poets could be sad when looking to the daffodils. The daffodils were creating a beautiful scene while dancing with the breeze beside the lake. Now whenever the feels alone he just thinks of the daffodils and feels happy and his heart start to dances with the daffodils.
The overall theme of William Wordsworth's "Daffodils" is that when the speaker is troubled or lonely, he thinks of a field of daffodils he once saw, and is filled with joy as his mind eases. The speaker is originally very gloomy in the opening of the first stanza, “I wandered lonely as a cloud”, until he sees a field of daffodils, “When all at once I saw a crowd, / A host, of golden daffodils;” and they instantly cheer him up. Nature is serene, uplifting, soul-cleansing, and peaceful to the speaker, and flowers could be viewed as one of the main symbols of happiness in the world because of their bright colors, attractive shapes and calming fragrance. Therefore, William Wordsworth has captured his experience with a field of daffodils in this poem and describes the pleasure it brought him with phrases like, “And then my heart with pleasure fills/ And dances with the daffodils” (Wordsworth).
Wadsworth's simple poem erroneously usually called "Daffodils," "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud," is one of the best-loved Romantic poets' paeans to the loveliness and evocative, healing power of nature.
The solitary speaker is presumably roaming over the hills of the Lake District, where Wadsworth lived. He is startled by the sudden appearance of a crowd, a vision of "a host of golden daffodils" bobbing in the breeze of a lake shore.The waves cannot compete with the gleefully dancing flowers. The speaker muses that, likewise, nothing a poet could ever write could outdo the simple beauty and vitality of the daffodils.
Wadsworth then realizes the true value of the vision of the dancing flowers: the memory of them will from now on inspire him: "For oft, when on my couch I lie/In vacant or in pensive mood,/They flash upon that inward eye [memory]/Which is the bliss of solitude;/and then my heart with pleasure fills."On a personal note, this was one of my late father's favourite poems, and is one of the first ones I memorized, more than 40 years ago.
The poet describes in the poem that as one day he was moving and all of a sudden he saw a host of yellow daffodils. As he looked on them dancing and tossing their heads in the breeze.
Then he told that in such a happy moment a poet cannot control his happiness. In this poem he has described his happiness after seeing daffodils and how he thought of writing this poem.
The poem is very simple and very beautiful and does not need to analyzed to death. Any person who was born and reared in the countryside can connect to it and understand it straight away, without looking for all sorts of hidden meanings. J. M.
This poem is about daffodils. In this poem, the poet imagines himself as a cloud and he describes the daffodils and the weather very eloquently. He compares them to shining stars in the Milky Way. Gazing at the daffodils, the poet feels very happy and he writes that when he is alone, the thought of the daffodils comes back to him and he is filled with pleasure.
All pretense aside, I believe that the poem is about stopping to smell the roses.
It talks of all of the beauty that exists in nature and the poet is basically saying that no matter what life brings , you should always stop to smell the roses. You should always take time out of the bustle of life to stop and do things that make you happy. Because one day when you do finally slow down and think about your life, its only the good times that you will remember.
