Making her very first blog entry just a year ago we now welcome back Marie-Louise Holmqvist and more sharing:
I do want to share 'What a Wonderful World with David Attenborough' One more thing to share, The Daffodils, a poem by William Wordsworth. I think it describes the wonder of spring and the beauty of nature better than anything else.
. 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. And twinkle on the milky way, Continuous as the stars that shine 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. .
Finally, I want to thank everyone who Commute Greener! Your dedicated and positive work for a sustainable world. It helps to give us, and succeeding generations, the possibilities to go on wondering at and be enchanted by the beauty of nature. Marie-Louise Holmqvist
