I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud

Time for some poetry :). Spring with warm temperatures and buds and flowers all around inspired me to make this file box. And while I was gluing the flowers on it I remembered the poem we had to learn by heart in English class in school... years ago. I tried to recite it while I was gluing but I forgot few lines, so I just had to find it and read it again. Here it is - to refresh my memory and perhaps yours as well :).

by William Wordsworth

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.

Hvala za pesmico. Ta pa ni bila tako enostavna za naučit, kaj?

Škatlica pa je tudi čisto tvoja, mislim "perfect in anyway".

BTW, lušne rožice.
