1. Daffodils
     "Daffodils" is a charming and fascinating poem composed by William Wordsworth. In this poem, the poet praises the beautiful objects of nature like breeze, waves and daffodils. 
     One day the poet was wandering alone along the side of a lake in a countryside. Suddenly he saw a large number of golden daffodils. These flowers were growing beside the lake, dancing in the breeze and stretching like the stars in the Milky Way. The waves of the lake were also dancing with joy but the daffodils surpassed them. The poet was much delighted to see this beautiful scene. 
     In the end the poet says that whenever he is in a thoughtful mood, the sight of the daffodils comes into his imagination and his heart is filled with pleasure. Thus a thing of beauty is a joy forever.  

2. Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
     "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" is a  thought-provoking poem composed by Robert Frost. In this poem, the poet describes the conflict between love of nature and call of social responsibilities. 
     On a dark winter evening, the narrator stops his little horse to watch the snow falling in the woods. Finding that the owner of the woods is absent, her lingers his stay. At this his horse is confused. He shakes his harness bell to ask if there is some mistake. Now the narrator realizes the pull of obligations and the considerable distance before he can rest for the night. 
     In short, the poem trumpets the beauty of nature and hints at the need to carry on the daily affairs of life. The world of fantasy is very inviting. But one must maintain balance between the world of fantasy and reality.
