The Daffodils

Lilik Wijayawati: Analysis on Poem “Daffodils” by William Wordsworth  (1770-1850)

In 2014, my husband and I visited England, Scotland, and Wales. One of the highlights of the trip was visiting the Lake District in England. I felt such an affinity for this beautiful area. It just draws you in and you never want to leave. The spectacular landscape also influenced many writers in the late eighteenth and nineteen centuries, including the Romantic Poet William Wordsworth. We visited the Wordsworth Family Graves in Grasmere, Cumbria, England…”The fairest place on Earth”.

This morning, I came across one of his lovely poems. It paints such a vivid word picture and makes me long to be among the daffodils watching them bend and sway in the breeze. Many others have written scholarly analyses of this enchanting poem. My intention here is to simply share it for the pure enjoyment of the beautiful words and the thoughts they evoke.
