      “Daffodils” is a poem by William Wordsworth. It is also known as “I wandered lonely as a cloud”. From the title of this poem, it is obvious that it is about daffodils. Wordsworth used broad range techniques in this poem, such as figurative language, rhyme, and word choices. I choose this poem because there are powerful vocabularies, countless techniques and an underlying theme.

      Wordsworth used varieties words choice to create the mood of this poem. The mood changes from peaceful, to happy, even crowded. In first stanza, Wordsworth used the word, lonely to convey the feeling of quiet; “dancing”, and “fluttering” to transition into a joyful mood. The

      poet expressed his feelings by using different word choices, for instance, jocund, glee, and gay. Not only did he use strong vocabularies to create the atmosphere of the poem, but also different techniques.

      Wordsworth used wide selection of techniques to describe the scene. He used personification to show the movements of the daffodils. For instance, “fluttering and dancing”, “tossing their hands”. On the other hand, Wordsworth also described the motion of the waves as dancing; and he mentioned that the daffodils “out-did the waves”. This hinted the motion of the daffodils. By comparing daffodils to stars, Wordsworth helps the reader visualize the quantity of them. He used “stretched” ...

      • to put extra detail on how big the daffodil field is. Also Wordsworth used rhyming to make the poem stronger. Every stanza of “Daffodils” has the rhyme scheme of A, B, A, B, C, C. Rhyming not only makes the poem more interesting, but also makes the rhythm faster, happier, and brighter.

        This poem is not just about daffodils, but also the feelings the poet had when he saw them. The daffodils are significant for natural beauty. A beauty like a simple pleasure that could cherish your heart, become a treasured memories that will always carries in your heart. When Wordsworth discovered this scene, he “could

        not but be gay”. He felt as he is part of nature, like he is dancing with the daffodils in the breeze. Like Wordsworth wrote, as the scene flash among his eyes, his heart immediately fills with pleasure.

        In conclusion, Wordsworth used different techniques to convey the mood of the poem, and also makes it more interesting. He also wanted express message to the reader that some simple pleasures can heal a lonely heart, make yourself happy. Sometimes you just have to look around, slow down, don’t be too catch up with the pace of the busy world, and simple pleasures are right there waiting to be discover.
