'The Daffodils'  by William Wordsworth

'The Daffodils' by William Wordsworth


A poem for birthdays - especially but not exclusively Spring ones - and all other occasions.


William Wordsworth (1770 – 1850) was an English Romantic poet.   He lived in the Lake District and it was there that his most famous lyric poem, The Daffodils, was written, after a walk with his sister Dorothy.  Dorothy’s diary describes how they saw a “long belt” of daffodils during their walk. 


For our card, illustrator Jan Brewerton has captured the life of the poem, with a mass of daffodils “Fluttering and dancing in the breeze”.   Jan did a B.A. in Fine Art at Coventry University and, after two years living and teaching in Italy, completed her post-graduate studies at Goldsmith's College, London.


Appropriately, all of our cards are made of paper sourced from a paper mill in the Lake District.

  • The words inside...

    The Daffodils


    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.
