More Lonely Cloud Wandering

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.

One response to “More Lonely Cloud Wandering

  1. Not wanting to provoke the sin of jealousy, but this is about 10 miles from where I live, near one of the other English lakes (Bassenthwaite). It’s one of the most blessed places on earth.
    We always say that “you come for the scenery, but stay for the people”. I’m not sure why, but God has made the locals here, some of the friendliest I’ve met.
    He is Risen!
