Q&A: What do you suspect the poem I wandered as lonley as a cloud is about?

Question by Kiki: What do you suspect the poem I wandered as lonley as a cloud is about?
I am just wondering, would anyone happen to know which poetry book this is from?

Here is the poem:

I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud 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 leaves in glee;
A poet could not be but 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 Danny Rose
Wordsworth’s heart dances with the daffodils. Nature is within the man, its laws an extension of his own self.

That his heart dances with the daffodils is to say that the beauty he thinks at first to be outward is inwardly contained. The daffodils enter his own soul, his inward eye, as the mere thought of beauty is beauty itself.
