Why did you in pleasure call for him
And make him to be guilty of obedience?
Why did you in regrets her life maim,
Aided by the vampires in white aprons?
Kings had died in your hands!
Queens’ bloods kissed your sands!
The great suns, moons and the stars
Have fallen from you into silent earths!
And those who should be in the parliaments,
You had led to rule the world from the toilets!
He too has dreams to fulfill,
Not to be shattered with a pill!
She too is meant in life to lead,
Not to be uprooted like a weed!
Why making your womb a bus,
Driving the little souls into holes?

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.
