This beautiful poem was written over two hundred years 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 stretch'd 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.
See! The winter is past;
the rains are over and gone.
Flowers appear on the earth;
the season of singing has come,
the cooing of doves
is heard in our land.
Song of Solomon 2:11-12

It brews single-cup coffee in less than a minute, & there are so many different brands of K-cups available....not only in coffee, but also tea or hot chocolate. Of course, my main love is the coffee. One of my favorites is shown below (Extra Bold Dark Magic). Now, that's a real cup of coffee!
Another beautiful snow day greeted us yesterday morning. Here is the view out my upstairs bay window.
The winding vines around the tree on the left is my wisteria. I'm really hoping it blooms this year, as it's one of my favorite flowers!
Hope you're having signs of Spring at your house!.....It's still winter here, & I'm beginning to regret singing 'Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!' over the holidays! Ha!
