Spotlight on Jisc Historical Texts

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. Wordsworth

One of the poems contained in 'Spring Songs and Sketches', an anthology from 1886 including original verse from E Nesbit.

This is just one of thousands of texts from the British Library 19th Century Collection which you can find at Jisc Historical Texts, part of the Jisc eCollections
