Wordsworth poem “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud”?

Question by Lissa: Wordsworth poem “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud”?
Where does the mood change. I have read this poem so many times and I cannot figure out where the mood changes. It is driving me insane.

Here is the poem:
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.

Answer by somewhere over the rainbow
well he seems like he is lonely and wondering and then when he remembers the lovely scenary, he is happy, i would say the mood changes in the first stanza and in the last it again reflects it.
