wordsworth poem

Discussion in 'English' started by asher6249, Mar 2, 2011.

  1. Hi, Have i dreamt it or is there really a poem to 'answer' to 'Daffodils'?
    I am sure that i read somewhere of a poem that begins as Wordsworths' but has an element of comedy about it. It was allegedly written by his sister?? and she talked about household chores that she was completing as he was wandering about the countryside.
    Please help as am being ridiculed by whole dept!!!!
    Thanks

    Is it in The World's Wife by Carol Ann Duffy?

    Sounds like something she'd do but I'm not sure.

    WHY DOROTHY WORDSWORTH IS NOT AS FAMOUS AS HER BROTHER

    "I wandered lonely as a...
    They're in the top drawer, William,
    Under your socks -
    I wandered lonely as a -
    No not that drawer, the top one.
    I wandered by myself -
    Well wear the ones you can find.
    No, don't get overwrought my dear, I'm coming.

    "I wandered lonely as a -
    Lonely as a cloud when -
    Soft-boiled egg, yes my dear,
    As usual, three minutes -
    As a cloud which floats -
    Look, I said I'll cook it,
    Just hold on will you -
    All right, I'm coming.

    "One day I was out for a walk
    When I saw this flock -
    It can't be too hard, it had three minutes.
    Well put some butter in it. -
    This host of golden daffodils
    As I was out for a stroll one -
    "Oh you fancy a stroll, do you?
    Yes all right, William, I'm coming.
    It's on the peg. Under your hat.
    I'll bring my pad, shall I, in case
    You want to jot something down?"
