Emily is inspired by William Woodsworth

 --for Ruby

I wandered, lonely as a cat
That stalks the fence o’er yards with ‘Dales
When, all at once, I saw a crowd
Of fluff-tailed squirrels and plumpy quails.
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Jumping and dancing in the breeze.
I strained and strained against the leash
To catch that wealth of critter-meat—
I almost caught; my teeth snapped shut—
And now, when on the couch I sprawl,
In drooling or in pensive mood,
They flash upon my inward eye
And scamper to my twitching paws.

"I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud" by William Wordsworth

    It's like you were looking right into my soul.


  4. We love Wordsworth.
    I WANDER'D 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 ~~~
    I think of that every year about this time when the daffodils begin to bloom.
    Sweet William The Scot
