"Ten thousand, the poet, he saw at a glance
The gleeful daffodils, in their merry dance
He wrapped the wealth of their joyful display,
For vacant days; To savor the fond replay.

A million and more in the double cluster I see
Stars in a bouquet, dancing with glee
Their piercing brilliance, their opulent shine
For the moment, for a night, nay! a lifetime ... is mine"
