    • POEM: I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud by William Wordsworth (4/7/2010 12:31:00 PM)

      The following interesting anecdote about the poem 'I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud' (aka: “Daffodils”) by Wordsworth is taken from the book “Creators” by Paul Johnson ©2006, page 283:
      “Wordsworth was in some ways an unobservant man. It was his sister, Dorothy, who saw the works of nature, in astonishing detail, and noted them down. When both were at Gowbarrow Bay, on Ullswater, when the daffodils were dancing in the wind, it was Dorothy who observed them and noted them in her journal, passing on her visual experience to her brother, who some weeks later wrote the famous poem. Without Dorothy it would not have come into existence.”
