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.

Beautiful sunlight gives these daffodils a radiant glow and the shadows are sharp.
after their dance under the sun, the daffodils are now taking a bow toward their adoring audience...
Wordsworth sure could pen a good poem, didn't he?
Love that daffodil shadow! A very happy shot indeed.

Beautiful shadow capture! :)
They look kind of bashful or prayerful.
I love that beautiful daffodil and its shadow.
Such pretty little daffadils
So lovely, Wordsworth sure knew of how the daffodils danced in the sunlight casting shadows on the ground! Great shot to accompany his words! It's been a while, but we're back and happy to be here! My Shadow Shot is, of course, of my Huskies. Happy Shadow Shot Sunday!
