The great William Wordsworth was born on 7 April 1770 in Cockermouth, Cumberland, in the famous Lake District, The Lakes being one of my fave places to go on holiday.
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.
We already have our recycled ATC challenges coming in :))) well done keep them coming girls... and if you look on the right hand side of the page you will notice we have a voting poll..well aren't we posh lol, so we don't even have to let it be known which ATC we voted for.
