Junior Exhibitors Poem

daffodils
HIHS 2020 Spring Show Junior Section.
Classes 57 and 63: Write out the poem below and decorate.

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.

By William Wordsworth
