so many that we can't list them all.
Any feeling you have can be a mood
A word or phrase that appeals to
one or more of the five senses

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
