Daffodils: A poem by William Wordsworth – Your favourite poem

daffsxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

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 leaves in glee;
A poet could not be but 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.

My Freedom

 

I always  wanted to  fly high  with  my  fearless freedom,

Achieve the impossible and justifying the desirous freedom.

 

But, I have been caged by  several bars  of  constraints

Which is holding and obliterating my helpless freedom.

 

I want to be unique; Different;Stand out from the crowd

Which can be feasible, Only by my ambitious freedom.

 

Financial pressure, One of the bars of the cage, Diverts me

To an ordinary path and closes my path of  congruous freedom.

 

I can physically roam and wander in this wide world,

But, Only by deserting my choice of hapless freedom.

*A Ghazal is a poem that is made up like an odd numbered chain of couplets, where each couplet is an independent poem. It should be natural to put a comma at the end of the first line. The Ghazal has a refrain of one to three words that repeat, and an inline rhyme that preceedes the refrain. Lines 1 and 2, then every second line, has this refrain and inline rhyme, and the last couplet should refer to the authors pen-name… The rhyming scheme is AA bA cA dA eA etc.
