Ese’s Weekly Shoot and Quote Challenge: Loneliness

Prompt 4 – LONELINESS

Language has created the word “loneliness” to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word “solitude” to express the glory of being alone. /P.Tillich/

Ok it’s a cliché but the temptation was just too great…

DSCF2588    SOLITUDE

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.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed—and gazed—but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

 

William Wordsworth
