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.
      - I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud
        [Clouds : Wander]

They dreamt not of a perishable home.
      - Inside of King's College Chapel, Cambridge

To me the meanest flower that blows can give
  Thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears.
      - Intimations of Immortality [Flowers]

Our noisy years seem moments in the being
  Of the eternal Silence.
      - Intimations of Immortality (IX) [Silence]

The holy time is quiet as a Nun
  Breathless with adoration.
      - It is a Beauteous Evening [Evening]

And beauty, for confiding youth,
  Those shocks of passion can prepare
    That kill the bloom before its time,
      And blanch, without the owner's crime,
        The most resplendent hair.
      - Lament of Mary, Queen of Scots [Passion]

Delivered from the galling yoke of time.
      - Laodamia [Time]

Elysian beauty, melancholy grace,
  Brought from a pensive, though a happy place.
      - Laodamia [Beauty]

For the Gods approve
  The depth, and not the tumult, of the soul.
      - Laodamia [Soul]

Yet tears to human suffering are due;
  And mortal hopes defeated and o'erthrown
    Are mourned by man, and not by man alone.
      - Laodamia [Tears]

For mightier far
  Than strength of nerve or sinew, or the sway
    Of magic potent over sun and star,
      Is love, though oft to agony distrest,
        And though his favourite be feeble woman's breast.
      - Laodamia (st. 15) [Love]

Nature never did betray
  The heart that loved her.
      - Lines Composed a Few Miles Above Tintern Abbey

Nor greetings where no kindness is, nor all
  The dreary intercourse of daily life.
      - Lines composed a few miles above Tintern Abbey

On that best portion of a good man's life,
  His little, nameless, unremembered acts
    Of kindness and of love.
      - Lines Composed a Few Miles Above Tintern Abbey

Sensations sweet,
  Felt in the blood, and felt along the heart.
      - Lines Composed a Few Miles Above Tintern Abbey

When the fretful stir
  Unprofitable, and the fever of the world
    Have hung upon the beatings of my heart.
      - Lines composed a few miles above Tintern Alley

Oh, be wise, Thou!
  Instructed that true knowledge leads to love.
      - Lines left upon a Seat in a Yew-tree

True dignity abides with him alone
  Who, in the silent hour of inward thought,
    Can still suspect, and still revere himself,
      In lowliness of heart.
      - Lines left upon a Seat in a Yew-Tree

A power is passing from the earth.
      - Lines on the Expected Dissolution of Mr. Fox

And 'tis my faith that every flower
  Enjoys the air it breathes.
      - Lines Written in Early Spring [Flowers]

This flower that first appeared as summer's guest
  Preserves her beauty 'mid autumnal leaves
    And to her mournful habits fondly cleaves.
      - Love Lies Bleeding [Love Lies Bleeding]

The sweetest thing that ever grew
  Beside a human door.
      - Lucy Gray (st. 2) [Sweetness]

Yet, sometimes, when the secret cup
  Of still and serious thought went round,
    It seemed as if he drank it up,
      He felt with spirit so profound.
      - Matthew [Thought]

Those old credulities, to nature dear,
  Shall they no longer bloom upon the stock
    Of History.
      - Memorials of a Tour in Italy (IV, At Rome)

. . . In shepherd's phrase
  With one foot in the grave.
      - Michael [Graves]
