we Analysis Of Daffodils No More By Gorden J. L. Ramel ~ Naija Poets
"Daffodils No More" is about unhappiness of a poet named, Gorden J. L. Ramel, regarding the negative effect of industrialization. The poet compared history with present but found no similarity as a result of industrialization's encroachment (industrial takeover). "Look around you for a second then cast the eyes of your heart back to the years gone, you'll realize how vast things have changed; Life keeps rotating like a wind and vast changes keep sweeping in."
Gorden Ramel must truly be a fan of William Wordsworth. The poem "Daffodils" by William Wordsworth motivated his concern for deterioration of natural things in this era.
"...for I had looked for daffodils/ and found but few in England's hills" (lines 5-6)
In stanza 2 of the poem, he made us realise that other beauties of nature were also missing alongside daffodils; things like butterflies, birds and
the rest which were said to have been replaced by artificial things like "barbed-wire fence/ protecting repetitious fields" as to earn higher farm yield.

At the final stanza quoted below, Gorden J. L. Ramel talked about destructive human race are:
"A poet could not help but sigh
on seeing how the world is changed
and ask himself, or God on high,
why humankind is so deranged
it can destroy, for such poor ends,
the world on which its life depends."
"Daffodils No More" by Gorden J.L.Ramel is a poem of four stanzas with six lines per stanza. Though void of specific metric count, its end rhyme scheme seems ABABCC DEDEFF. This poem as a parody place it side-by-side with Kim Boey Chen's parody to William Wordsworth as well.
