I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud

 I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud

By: William Wordsworth.

I wondered 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

 

The poem “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud” makes me feel wonderful. This is why I chose this poem. I chose this poem for many different reasons. First of all, this poem makes me calm when I’m mad or it sometimes makes me happy when I read it while I’m angry. It also makes me feel like I’m floating in the sky. The line in the poem that says “that float on high o’er vales and hills” makes me feel like this. When I read this poem, the images that pop into my head are coconut trees, beautiful clouds and pretty grasses with flowers on top. I’m just imagining lying on the grass and looking up the sky. The line in the poem” beside the lake, beneath the trees, fluttering and dancing in the breeze” makes me feel like this. When I read this poem, I feel that it is telling me to calm down and relax and it actually works because I do feel calm. These are some of the reasons why I chose this poem. The poem “I Wondered Lonely as a Cloud” makes me feel wonderful.

Thank you for sharing that poem. I can see why it makes you feel calm and peaceful. This is important when we work with kids. We teach our students options on the playground or other times when they are angry on how to react. This gives me an idea for the door in my class that leads to the playground. I can use your po-e-tree idea in some form to give kids something soothing or positive to look at on the way out and when they come back in from recess. It may alleviate some tension.
