Before I read this book, Daffodils was my favourite Wordsworth poem Now, after reading 900 pages of Wordsworth, Daffodils is still my favourite of his poems Though, now I have a second favourite Here it is To A ButterflyI ve watched you now a full half hour,Self poised upon that yellow flower And, little Butterfly indeedI know not if you sleep or feed.How motionless not frozen seasMore motionless and thenWhat joy awaits you, when the breeze Hath found you out among the trees,And calls you forth [...]

    10. Wordsworth is the greatest of all the English Romantics He is notable especially for his lyricism and for his sensitive and simple style but he is not trivial at least when he is at his best in the greatest of his poems.ough he wrote a good deal of bad poetry yet he is still one of the most great and the most beautiful of all the poets of the English language
