Special memories in the Wordsworth poem -- i like how you've added it as a "found haiku". :)

Perhaps that would be a fun exercise -- haiku all around us -- if we have the heart to look. And your narcissus haiku has heart ---

Ah, Wordsworth. Incidentally, Daffodils is being studied as one of Romantic poetry by my son in school.
