5 Reasons Why You Need Take Your Kids To The Library
THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE, EVERYBODY
Happy National Library Week, friends! You rock. Via the wonderful Emily Lloyd at Shelf Check.
National Library Week is back, and with it, our favorite GIF of all time. Yes, we love this even more than all the Cumberbatchian or Hiddlestonian goodness you can throw at us (though you are welcome to test that assertion).
Rock on, friends & colleagues!
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.
