Phlowers & Poetry – Daffodils

Today’s Color Your World – 120 Days of Crayola color is Goldenrod. I don’t have any goldenrod flowers on hand, but I do have the promise of daffodils growing in my garden. Yesterday, I walked around the yard and found the promise of Spring in the midst of a nice clump of daffodil leaves.

“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.”

~ William Wordsworth

And then my heart with pleasure fills,

And dances with the daffodils.”

~ William Wordsworth

  1. Kathy,
    This is my very favorite poem of all time. Thank you for sharing it and the promise that new things are around the corner.
    I am facing some disappointment now and your post reminded me that if I hang on, things will take a turn and something nice will come out of it.
    Thank you,
    Susie
