Who Am I?
Poem 1: I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud
Poem 2: Written In March
He was born April 7, 1770 and died April 23, 1850.
He was a poet that wrote many romantic poems; with his poem Lyrical Ballads, he helped start the Romantic Age in English literature.
Lived in Northwest England in a mansion with his
siblings and parents, his father was distant from the family.
His sister was also a poet and a diarist.
The piece of writing that helped Wordsworth make his
debut was a sonnet he wrote in The European Magazine.
He also had a daughter with Annette Vallon in France,
which gave problems because of the problems between England and France. And married four times, never married Vallon.
He wrote many other romantic poems.
by Muhammad Samara and Ashley Pummel
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.
The cock is crowing,
The stream is flowing,
The small birds twitter,
The lake doth glitter
The green field sleeps in the sun;
The oldest and youngest
Are at work with the strongest;
The cattle are grazing,
Their heads never raising;
There are forty feeding like one!
Like an army defeated
The snow hath retreated,
And now doth fare ill
On the top of the bare hill;
The plowboy is whooping—anon-anon:
There's joy in the mountains;
There's life in the fountains;
Small clouds are sailing,
Blue sky prevailing;
The rain is over and gone!
The poem is a four stanza, six lines each. all four of them follow an ABABCC rhyme scheme and iambic pentameter
