There are many of Wordsworth's poems that seek to connect the subjective experience to the natural setting as "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud."  The exact specifications of daffodils might be a bit challenging, but similar elements can be found in other poems.  For example, in the collection of poems entitled "Descriptive Sketches," one can see some of the "Daffodils" elements at play in this poem which describes Wordsworth's walk through the Alps.  The ideas of "solitude preparing the soul for heaven," "every passing zephyr whispers joy," and tracking "the yellow lights from steep to steep" can help to illuminate many similar components in both poems. In another of his poems, "To a Butterfly," the longing and yearning of Wordsworth which was reflected through his love of the daffodils can be seen in his affections towards a butterfly.  The opening lines of pleading it to stay are very similar to the same desire expressed in the "Daffodils" poem, where he expresses a similar desire to immerse himself in natural beauty in order to find a sense of emotional contentment.
