we The Theme Of Loneliness In Daffodils By William Wordsworth ~ Naija Poets
"I wonder'd lonely as a cloud
That floats on high over vale and hills, when all at once I saw a crowd,
A host of golden daffodils"
William Wordsworth in the poem Daffodils envied the union of the mass daffodils dancing beside the lake in comparison to his own loneliness; this motivates naijapoets.com.ng to look into the theme of loneliness in Daffodils by William Wordsworth.
The first stanza discussed how the poet became cognisant of the daffodils, the second stanza showed the strong bond and unity within the endless number of daffodils fluttering with the breeze beside the lake, the third stanza is about the strong impact the scene had on the poet to the level that "A poet could not but be gay/ In such jocund company/ I gaze_ and gazed_ but little thought/ What wealth the show to me had brought". The final stanza of the poem is where the beautiful union of the daffodils kept questioning the poet's lonely mood and by so doing returned the poet's sense of remembrance to the dazzling daffodil scene. In a nutshell, the daffodils became the therapeutic remedy to the poet's loneliness.
The poem "Daffodils" has a total of twenty lines divided into four stanzas of five lines per stanza. The fourth stanza is as quoted below:
"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".
