I received permission to reprint an email I received from a parishioner here on the blog:
“I just saw your blog entry “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud.” I absolutely love that poem. When my daughter graduated from high school we went to England for 3 weeks (June 2007), including a week up in the Lake District. One day we were on a group tour around some of the lakes. At one point, we took a boat ride on Ullswater, the largest in the Lake District. That’s the lake that, one day during a walk, Wordsworth and his sister saw the daffodils, which inspired the poem.” He also gave permission to reprint one of his pictures.
