Mid Week Quote

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

I hope everyone is having a good week so far and looking forward to a book filled weekend.

I went for a long walk on monday and it inspired me to find a nature quote because everything I saw was greener and coming into bloom. It was wonderful to see after a gloomy winter.

“Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature.”

 

Gerard de Nerval

1843

 

Gerard de Nerval was the pen name of Gerard Labrunie, a French Romatic poet, novelist and essayist.

Friday Poetry

The daffodils are out so I thought a suitable poem was required. Also I do believe the weekly poetry reading is starting to work as I am finding more and more poems that I enjoy reading.

Happy friday everyone and I hope you all have some excellent reading planned for the weekend.

Daffodils

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.

 

William Wordsworth
