Main Idea

By: Tallen Richards
These strategies helped me think about the poem on a deeper level. Analyzing "says" "means" "matters" really helped me get a better understanding of the author's message and theme of the poem.
This information helped me learn that this poem by William Wordsworth would possibly have a romantic tone.
The speaker talks about he wanders lonely like a cloud but then comes across various beautiful sights (a metaphor for a girl since the poet is a romantic writer) and after he comes across these sights his life became bright and positive. This shows that happiness can be found through love.
The message of the poem is that happiness can be found through love. This is shown when the poem says, "When all at once I saw a crowd, A host, of golden daffodils," (lines 3-4) This proves that love can lead to happiness because the crowd of golden daffodils is a symbol for a loved one or significant other and good words are used to describe them showing the happiness of the speaker.
The purpose of this poem is to let people know that love and happiness can be very near and can be in many different forms
The audience of this poem are people who are romantic but need to be educated on how to find love and what love represents.
The tone of this poem is very positive, romantic, and uplifting. This is shown when the speaker says, "Continuous as the stars that shine and twinkle on the milky way," lines 7-8. This shows positive compliments of the speakers significant other, setting a positive tone.
When reading this poem I got mood of romance because of how the speaker used metaphors to describe someone in there life.
Example: The whole poem
Explanation: The poem is a metaphor of the speaker being a lonely cloud (lonely, unhappy person) who finds all these beautiful things (special person) and is alleviated from their loneliness.
In the poem, "I Wandered as a Lonely Cloud", by William Wordsworth about a lonely cloud who finds happiness in its beautiful surroundings the author shows that happiness can be found through love and love can be found in various ways.
