I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud
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:
Then 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.

Too hot to handle? Expect more heat waves due to climate change,
LONDON: The effects of climate change mean the world can expect
higher temperatures and more frequent heat waves, climate experts have
warned, with poor communities likely to be worst affected.
Heat is neglected because it is both an invisible and hard-to-document
disaster that claims lives largely behind closed doors, they said, and
because hot weather does not strike many people as a serious threat.
The warning comes as hot weather has swept the northern hemisphere.
Britain has sweltered in a prolonged heat wave, with temperatures set to
test national records, the country’s Meteorological Office said.
“We will have to get used to these kinds of summers,” said Friederike
Otto, deputy director at the Environmental Change Institute at Oxford
“There is no doubt that there is a link to climate change. We need to
take heat waves seriously around the world as something that we need
to adapt to,” Otto told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.
