William Wordsworth – Daffodils

Wordsworth's Daffodils3
Wordsworth's Daffodils2
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.

Darryl Echt – Activist In Tent Defines Self

An Activist In A Tent
Trying To Define Herself
Early in The Morning

I am not a bald eagle
I am not a black bear
I am not a coho salmon
I am a woman with a song
but I can’t sing
I am a human who has to
touch everything
I am a doubter, I dabble
in disbelief
I will never be the tree
I am not even a leaf
