about the poem

The Wordsworth Trust says the famous poem was composed in 1804, two years after Wordsworth saw the flowers on the shores of Lake Ullswater. The area is also one of the last remaining strongholds of the Lake District red squirrel.

His inspiration for the poem came from an account written by sister Dorothy. In her journal entry for 15th April 1802, she describes how the daffodils: “Tossed and reeled and danced, and seemed as if they verily laughed with the wind, that blew upon them over the lake.”
