'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...
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.
by William Wordsworth (1770 - 1850)
