Weekly Photo Challenge: Down

Daffy-down-Dilly

Has come to town

With a yellow petticoat

And a pretty green gown

Daffy-down-Dilly

– Nathaniel Hawthorn

 

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.

–  William Wordsworth

  15. Beautiful! Absolutely Beautiful!
    Great poetry selections to match the photos.
    When I was a kid in school we memorized Wordsworth.
    It has been a favorite spring-time poem all these years.
    Have a great week-end!
