Rap out a daffodilly of a poem

For the last day of National Poetry Month (a back-to-work Monday morning) I thought that perhaps we could all use a good laugh. Here is the entirely familiar Wordsworth poem "I Wandered lonely as a cloud" remade for the new generation of tourists to the Lake District. Secret footage of the Lake District mascot, a large red squirrel named M.C. Nuts, cavorting in the daffodils with an un-Wordsworthian swagger, has been made available to us all.

  1. Kind of a nutty video...but interesting how making Wordworth contemporary is even seen as a possibility and a desired one at that.
