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 leaves in glee;
A poet could not be but 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."

...οι δικοί μου οι νάρκισσοι ήδη μαράθηκαν...
...άνθισαν όμως τα σκυλάκια μου!

Γιάννη, εύλογο, αφού οι δικοί μου είναι "κατεψυγμένοι", από την Καθαρά Δευτέρα. Κονσέρβα νάρκισσοι...
Καταπληκτικα και τα σκυλάκια, να τα χαρείς. Τι χρώμα;

Κική, σ' ευχαριστώ. Καλοί, αλλά όχι σαν τα φαγητά σου. ;)

Να ακούσετε και το τραγούδι -εκτός από την απαγγελία- που "κρύβω" στο ποίημα...
