Transcript of I wandered lonely as a cloud

By: Megan Zarate, Skylar Harris, Maya Maslovska
and Haley Bonior I wandered lonely as a cloud I wandered lonely as a cloud 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 a sprightly dance

The waves beside them danced; but they
Outdid the sparkling waves in glee;
A poet could not but be gay,
In such 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. Poetic Devices Simile- I wandered lonely as a cloud

Personification- Fluttering and dancing in the breeze

Hyperbole- Ten thousand I saw at a glance

Repetition- I gazed and gazed but never thought

Imagery- And then my heart with pleasure fills

Assonance- A host, of golden daffodils Poem Structure Each stanza has 6 lines, and in each stanza the first line always rhyms with the third, the second line always rhyms with the fourth, and the fith and sixth always rhym. William Wordsworth Theme The theme of the story could possibly be
that thinking of good times and things that make you fill with happines could make you happy when your feeling under the weather. William Wordsworth is the author of "I Wandered Lonely as
a Cloud" as well as many other poems. Some of his poems were
put into a book entitled Lyrical Ballads. He wrote Lyrical Ballads with is co-writer Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Most of William's poems were about moments of everyday life, especially because he believed in freedom, equality, and brotherhood. 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.


A person was taking a walk on
their own. They saw hills, valleys,
trees, and daffodils beside a lake.
The daffodils were swaying 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 person saw lots of daffodils and thought
they were really pretty. The waves beside them danced; but they
Outdid 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:


The waves and daffodils moved like they were
dancing, but the daffodils danced more in the
breeze. No one could be anything but happy
when they are surrounded by such beautiful
things. The person daydreamed at this place
and it changed his perspective on life. Before we read the poem, we predicted what the poem would be about. We thought it would be about a guy that is very lonely, and has no one in his life. Also, we thought the poem would be very depressing and sad. We predicted wrong, the poem is mainly about nature. 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.


When the speaker lies on his couch thinking,
the scene flashes into his head and fills him
with joy and happiness. He continues to
picture himself within the beauty of the
nature. The rhythm flows throughout the whole poem.
There is also a rhyme scheme, which is ABACDD. The Poetic structure is Lyrical
Aslo in iambic tetrameter.
It gose unstressed then stressed. EXAMPLE: In the first stanza he wandered lonely as a cloud, which could indicate he was feeling lonely, or sad.
Then he thought about the dancing golden daffodils, he filled with glee and felt more happy. Another theme could be that nature could make people happy but people might not notice it enough. The poem means to us that if your feeling down just think of something happy that will fill you with glee. The meaning of the peom is that he is a person who is feeling alone and when he thinks about daffodils, nature becomes his kind of friend.
