Dancing with Daffodils


Cheap thrills....Happy 🌼 daffodils are just $1.49 a bunch at Trader Joe's-Spokane,WA. It’s true, you can’t buy happiness but you can buy daffodils and that’s kind of the same thing. 💛 #flowerpower
Daffodils always remind me of the Walt Whitman poem, I wandered lonely as a cloud. 
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.
