The poem begins with a similitude, the poet that is “I” and identifies himself with a cloud. And this stands for a prose of reification in which the human being is reduced to a thing. This identification allows a change in perspective, in fact the poet as a cloud sees the hearth from high to below. In the third line the poet sees a crowd, that is a word associating with human beings, but in the next line we’ll discover that the “crowd” and “host” refer to the daffodils. The verbs “fluttering” and “dancing” reinforce the ideas of the personification of the flowers.

In the second stanza, we have a new reverse in perspective from below to height. In this way the flowers are made into stars and meadow is now referred to thought the metaphor of the milky way. In the third line of the second stanza we have a hint to the concern of the romantics with team of the infinity. The mean the absence of limit of barriers between man and nature. The verb “tossing” (l 12) strength the idea of a personification highlighting the pantheistic vision of a nature that Wordsworth draws from Spinoza’s philosophy. The third stanza begins with a new metaphor: the daffodils appear to the poet as waves that transformed into a bay. This spectacle fills the part with a deep emotion but “little thought” that is it brings no reflection. In the last stanza we have a fine example of W. conception of “an emotion recollected in tranquility”. The poet affirms that when in second moment he fines himself in a state of relax and tranquility. The vision of the daffodils comes back to is “inward eye” (namely is mind), so a second emotion similar to the first but enriched by the imagination and inner life of the poet comes out and the poet can at lost understand the more message hidden in the vision of daffodils, the union of man and nature.
