The next poem paints a picture of an English springtime. Written by William Wordsworth. Wordsworth’s poems are usually set in the English Lake District. The poem describes the beauty one sees in a field full of daffodils, one of the very first spring flowers in Bend, OR.
Excerpt From “I wandered lonely as a cloud" by William Wordsworth (1770 - 1850)
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”
My wish for you where ever you live is for a gentle spring.
What are the first flowers to pop up in your neck of the woods?
