'Do the little things' ('Gwnewch y pethau bychain')

Hello there,

Here in the UK it is St David's Day.    
He is the patron saint of Wales.  http://sucs.org/~rhys/stdavid.html
The national flower of Wales is the Daffodil. I love Daffodils,  they are sunny cheerful flowers, and always make me smile.............

So to all my Welsh friends,  have a wonderful St David's Day!!!

"Daffodils" (1804) 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).
