This lesson focuses on how the second and third stanzas of the poem compare daffodils to two elements of nature. In stanza two, the poet uses the stars to help explain the vastness of the daffodils. In stanza three, the poet compares the dancing daffodils to the dancing waves in the lake. In order to develop this understanding, students must employ skills to infer using specific details from the text, interpret a connection between the three forms of nature and determine words and phrases the poet uses to prove that the daffodils leave a deep imprint on his inner-self.
