“The spring has sprung, the grass is rizz. I wonder where them birdies is?” ― A.A. Milne

It definitely looks like Spring has arrived at Coronation Park.  The weather is warm and sunny and it is lovely to see so many people out enjoying the park, boating lake, skate park and play area.  The beautiful display of daffodils brought to mind the famous poem by William Wordsworth:

“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.”
― William WordsworthI Wander’d Lonely as a Cloud
