Wordsworth's Daffodils

One spring morning, William and his sister Dorothy stroll through the woods and arrive at the lake. As usual, they pause to admire the scenery. The hills surrounding the tranquil stretch of water are beautiful, but some daffodils impress them most.

Dorothy finishes her sketch and decides to also describe them in her diary entry for the day. William feels inspired to write a poem.

    Love your haiku on this poem. I am still learning haiku on face book with Deb and Caroline who correct me when I am wrong. It is a learning process. I am to emotional so that gets in the way. I always think freeze the moment. soup mail

    Jack, this is a very unique theme for a haibun. Best wishes in Doobie's haibun contest. Is this really how Wordsworth's famous poem was inspired? With a sisterly stroll?
