I Wandered...

A Celebration of the 200th Anniversary of the Publication of William Wordsworth's 'Daffodil' Poem 

"Though it was to be focused on William Wordsworth and his world famous poem I Wandered I didn’t want the whole evening spent just looking at Wordsworth’s poetic works. I wanted to bring in a more modern approach through art and poetry, and as was requested by the descendants of Wordsworth that we try and revive interest in the Daffodil poem. Well it seems from comments made on the opening night that both these ‘performers’ achieved just that. A portrait of William Wordsworth created in the 21st century by the exceptional foresight, expertise and talent of Hideyuki. The amazing ways with words and the performing talents of poet Gary Boswell who again showed how poetry can be great fun and entertaining. Who else would find the word ‘Laff-o-dil’ from the inspiration of the famous poem itself? ‘…in such jocund company’? Who knows?"

- Peter Elkington, Former Curator & Director of Rydal Mount & Gardens (excerpts from Preface)
