Strong dark green tubes bursting through thawing ground
Higher and higher sunlight overhead
Slender your tender sheaths before me crown
Such delight awaiting the joy they spread

For so many signs of spring to espy
So very few can rightfully compare
Will Wordsworth's 'flash upon the inward eye'
Many glorious golden trumpets glare

For right of passage in changin' seasons
Happily shove away ol' winter blues
Rightly explain and marvel more reasons
Cornucopia of chromatic hues

The happiest brightest flower of spring
For many a warm hearted smile does bring

About this poem:
In honor of the great English poet, Mr. William Wordsworth, I bring to the corner this inspired tribute to his truly masterful epic poem, "Daffodils". The mere sight of a field of amazing daffodils here in the New England countryside is really very 'spellbinding'.

I wandered lonely as a cloud that floats on high o'er vales and hills
When all at once I heard a shout, 'Gerrof me bloody Daffodils'!


Sorry Yankee, a little schoolgirl humour there. uh oh
It's a lovely New World Daffodil poem, as joyful as those sunshine blooms.

Some lazy a** deer bedded in our yard last night and flattened a few Daffodils, but we've got quite a crop here so it's not so bad!

Jesse. It's amazing how inspiring it is to read the older classics in poetry. Before TV and Radio, these masters really commanded the language and entertained the masses. professor wine
