Spring flowers. 早春花

Carnival at Elsa's school. She asked me for a spring flower dress. 
So, here's my little daffodil.

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 Wordsworth. The Daffodils.

    And, lovely little daffodil Elsa!
    Love so much her hat and collar. I adore your creative mind!
    Does Elsa go to a Waldorf school?
    I wish iza can go to school with Elsa ... it seems there is a lot of fun and room for imaginations, creativity and appreciations :)
    Can hardly imagine this happening in HK schools ... where we only study, study and study ...
    Thanks so much for sharing!

  4. Dear Alliot,
    you recognised well the Waldorf schools'atmopsphere in my pictures and the design of her costume ! Yes, and we're very happy with the school so far. She is still in the kindergarten, and will enter 1rst class next fall. We can feel the joyfull mood around, and that each child is really regarded as a unique human being. Elsa's always singing on the way to and back from school.
    Maybe there also Waldof schools in HK too?

  5. Dear Amelie, now I just feel it is SO nice to know you. You are the whole package for me... your poem, your photography, your creativity, your 中国字, your special and beautiful Elsa, 黄色的水仙 and Waldorf school...and you are such an artist to my sense, to whom I admire so much...
    I am so happy that you have opened this blog and give me the chance to know you and Elsa. I am so grateful all these nicest things happening in my life.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. Thank you all dear friends. I would not have imagined the pleasure of making up that blog, what it will bring in my life, how all your messages would warm my heart, how important all of you would become in my life.
    I could never thank you enough, dear Fei An, to have encouraged me to begin with...
