Introspection Nature Serenity

बस यूँही……

The magic of a serene sunset.
The beauty of a quiet walk in the mountains, looking inwards, thinking to oneself, is an opportunity which I will rarely pass.
Some of my most beautiful moments have been spent in introspection.
I was reminded of William Wordsworth’s Daffodils, which Mrs Siddiqui had taught us more than half a century ago.
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.
