Ullswater Cloud 80/9
Moorcroft - Ullswater Cloud 80/9
"I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud" in 1804 while living at Town End in Grasmere.(new para) "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."
The inspiration for the poem came from a walk Wordsworth took with his sister Dorothy around Glencoyne Bay, in the Lake Distrist in April 1802 which she described in her journal:
"When we were in the woods beyond Gowbarrow park we saw a few daffodils close to the water side, we fancied that the lake had floated the seed ashore and that the little colony had so sprung up - But as we went along there were more and yet more and at last under the boughs of the trees, we saw that there was along belt of them along the shore, about the breadth of a country turnpike road".
