I Wandered lonely as a cloud

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.

The poet, during a walk in the Lake District, saw a great quantity of daffodils which made him feel happy and in contact with nature the flowers are personified, in fact they are described as a dancing crowd, whose beauty is superior to everything else.
The poem is divided into four stanzas:
1. In the I stanza: He is alone, when suddenly he sees a host of daffodils.
2. In the II stanza: The poet describes the flowers.
He sees ten thousand daffodils that are compared to the stars that shine on the Milky Way.
3. In the III stanza: Now the poet is happy because the flowers make him feel happy and in touch with nature.
4. In the IV stanza: The poet, when he comes home, remembers the daffodils, which appear in that inward eye and which is the bliss of solitude and make his heart happy.
