Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but the only poem titled "To Daffodils" that I know of is by Robert Herrick.  I always think of Herrick as the "stop and smell the roses poet." His most famous poem is "To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time." He has many poems which focus on the passage of time, mortality, making the most of life and he also frequently compares human life to nature or the seasons. This is something that many poets did, particularly the Romantics which would come about a century after Herrick. 

In the poem, the speaker weeps to see the daffodils "hasten away so soon" because he recognizes the beauty of nature but also because they remind him of his own mortality, that like them, he too someday will die. "Like anything," he says, even time in a sense dies and the final analogy is between human mortality/death and summer rain or morning dew: here relatively momentarily, then gone being absorbed into the earth as we go into the grave "never to be found again."
