a famous poem (1807, revised in 1815) by William Wordsworth. Its first lines are:
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.It is remembered by older British people as a poem studied at school, and is considered to be a typical example of Romantic poetry.
