Daffie Days - The Vase - "Hello Spring!"

Bulldog Pottery - Daffie Days - March 22-23, 2013

We are getting ready for our 3rd annual "Daffie Days" on March 22-23, 2013 (Friday and Saturday), from 10-5 on both days here at  Bulldog Pottery, Seagrove, North Carolina.

Visit The Writers Almanac by Garrison Keillor, to read or hear a little bit about this poem.

I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud

by William Wordsworth
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.

Thanks for the b log and your dedication. Good Luck on your Spring enterprises. It really doesn't seem like a year has passed since you were promoting last years Daffie Days.
