My personal approach for “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud”
I have seen “I Wandered Lonely as Cloud” in my literature books since I was in high school, but my lack of interest in poems made me reject on reading it every time. But the delays made me regret for not reading it earlier than I could have. William Wordworth’s I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud is something that made me travel to a paradise for a while as I read. The feeling made me ask on reading it more and more.
The title is a little confusing for me at first, but as I read the passages on, I realized that I was already reflecting myself as the cloud that is enjoying the view of the daffodils.
William Wordsworth welcomed me with a warm introduction of the poem, making me realize that the poem has a light and positive mood.
At first, I was a little confused, “Is the whole poem just a hyperbole of describing the beauty of the daffodils?” After rereading the poem, I realized, the author is comparing the daffodils into something. Is he comparing it to the stars on the Milky Way? I think it is something deeper than that. Then the third stanza gave me the hint that it is not something a poet like him would be that overjoyed with simple daffodils, perhaps it is not “something” but “someone”; a personification to the “wealth” of a noble man and a “jocund company” that could take away his “pensive mood”. I think William Wordsworth is trying to express his love into someone through the beauty of the daffodils.
After analyzing the text by myself, I thought of comparing the daffodils to my family, perhaps only hyperbole could define my gratitude for their presence, may it be the golden daffodils or any other beauty in the world there is.

Personal approach to the poem daffodils
As I readthe title, ‘’ I wandered lonely as a cloud’’ I thought that the author is lonely and helpless. But as I scroll down to the second and third stanza, “fluttering and dancing”- celebrating their freedom and being engaged in nature. The beauty of flowers was emphasized through the simile: ‘’ continuous as the stars that shine and twinkle on the Milky Way’’. ‘’tossing their heads in sprightly dance’’ is once again emphasizing the feeling of joy that the nature can bring.
A poem that makes you feel good about your outlook in life. I realized that when you use your imagination, you may find new companion in the presence of nature.Being lonely sometimes gives you the best time to concentrate, meditate and know about yourself more.Nature is truly the best companion and remedy to stress because you may find peace of heart and mind through it. Being engaged with nature for me can enlightens the darkest parts of my life, realizing my mistakes and think how to make it right. Appreciation with the beauty of nature teaches me to be contented of what I already have in life. A person will not really experience loneliness if she/he learns to communicate with nature.
As I glanced to the title “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud”, I became interested to read it, confused as well because it used the idiomatic expressions.
Here the speaker is lonely and he loves to walk in countryside. He sees and identifies the nature. In the first stanza, the poet compares to a cloud that is floating over him and a host, of golden daffodils attracts his attention. As the lines go, the poet compares the daffodils to the Milky Way.
For me, the author wrote this poem because it is actually his nature and maybe the poet lived beside the lake,mentioned in fisrt stanza.
I really appreciate this poem because I can relate myself to it. If I’m sad and alone I love to gaze the nature, my mind is wandering and it cures my loneliness.
Therefore, I conclude that before we can understand ourselves, we have to contact or connect with nature.

DAFFODILS by William Wordsworth
This is a good poem for me,after I read this poem I felt happiness and imagined the beauty of our nature.I observed that Wordsworth described the beauty of nature and the importance of it.If how the nature help us,the author experience loneliness,that's why he compared himself to a cloud floating in the sky over hills and valley.And I think the narrator is nature lovers,because in my opinion he go to nature for him to relieve her sadness.
The poem comprises four stanzas and each stanza has six lines. The rhyme scheme is ababcc and there is the use of alliteration and assonance. The poet has used simile in the title of the poem and in the second stanza. The language is simple in this poem. There are eight syllables in each line and it has iambic tetrameter.
The speaker portray the disinterest and detachment of human in nature who do not realize the beauty and comfort the nature can give while they are suffering failures and disappointment. Concurrently we lost the real beauty of life and drown in the practical way of life comforting ourselves in the worldly things. As I internalize the poem I came to impression that some people when they are downcast they are not relieve by other comfort that unravel their angst, which is wrong. As the poet use the daffodils as symbol of the beauty of life, we should enjoy and savour the pleasure that it offers.
My Personal Approach with the poem "I wondered Lonely As A Cloud "
From the title itself, I as the reader think that the author is wondering as a bulk of cotton like cumulus clouds up in the sky watching the dawn and dusk in earth.
But as I read and read and read again the lines under it, my mind sees a paradise-like place with garden of daffodils,yes "daffodils " this word lasted in me.
The poem is lined up with the beautiful languages that describes how serenity the nature is and perfect to companion with.

He does arise reader’s interest in exploring the beauty of the nature. In the end, this piece really envelops the close bond that nature holds with man.
PERSONAL-RESPONSE CRITICISM- “I Wandered Lonely as Cloud”(Daffodils)
I really enjoyed reading this poem maybe because of its quiet and peaceful tone that was very relaxing, at the same time, it activates my imagination to explore and experience the most impressively beautiful place that has been described in the poem.
As I read this poem, there was something touched my empathy to the first person who played as a speaker, to curiously discover the depth and meaningful interpretation of each stanza. From the first stanza, the speaker uses the sad mood diction in the first line and it shift to a great feeling of happiness or excitement in the last three lines. In second stanza, my interpretation goes to the perfect place, heaven or in afterlife with the sense of rest and piece. In the third stanza, the worth of joy, piece and life rather than money and other worldly goods. And in the last, the shifting of joyful and peaceful tone to one pensive thought, so here, the speaker is in the stage of loneliness or longing for someone and facing the reality of disappointment in this earthy life .He is trying to comport himself and peacefully thinking about afterlife through watching the dancing daffodils this experience holds on to his memory which give hope to his life.
So overall, I really love this heart touching poem.
