Today’s Tea tidbit is a quote by Charles Dickens (from 365 Things Every Tea Lover Should Know):
“My dear, if you could give me a cup of tea to clear my muddle of a head I should better understand your affairs.”
And today’s poem is by William Wordsworth:
I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud
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.
