Spring Garden Kolams - Daffodils
Dots - Interlaced 15 - 8
I have been trying to complete this kolam for the last two weeks but something or the other came in the way and only today I managed to complete it. Though I am not fully satisfied with the outcome I am going ahead and uploading it because I am sure it will take much longer if I keep it and try to get a fully satisfied product. Let me know what you think friends
When I see this kolam I am reminded of the beautiful poem I learnt in school written by William Wordsworth
I wander'd 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 stretch'd 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.
By William Wordsworth (1770-1850).
