I am wondering if anyone knows the rest of this poem by Wordsworth, I just have an expert form it and would like to here the rest:

I wander'd lonely as a cloud, that floats on high o'er vales and hills, when all at once I saw a crowd, a hose of golden daffodils.......

Romeo: Here it is, found at http://www.bartleby.com/145/ww260.html It is a lovely collection of imagery. Thanks for prompting me to find it.

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.
1804.
