Question by charmaine_gem: write a 5-7 line poem related to the poem below.?
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.
countinuous as the stars that shine
and twinkle on the milky way,
they stretched in never-ending line,
along the margin of bay:
ten thousand saw i at a glance,
tossing their heads in sprightly dance.
the waves beside them danced; but they
outdid the sparkling waves in glee-:
a poet could not 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 hanmabookie
this poem is really long, my friend;
i could not wait to reach the end.
this does not mean the poem was bad,
but only that it made me sad.
for i too have played in fields of gold
the remembrance of this dates me old.
(give me credit for trying.)
(and by “dates me old” i meant “makes me feel old.”)
