This poem is about a guy watching a field of daffodils. In the first stanza, he compares himself to a cloud floating above watching over this great number of flowers near the lake and underneath the trees.

The second stanza continues to note their great number by comparing them to the stars (which are innumberable), calling them a "never-ending line" and numbering them once by the phrase "ten thousand."

The third stanza talks about how happy the sight of this great number of daffodils makes him.

By the last stanza he notes that when he is alone, he goes back to this imagery to make himself happy.

Hyperbole can be found in the 2nd stanza with the references to the stars, the never-ending line and the number ten thousand.

Good Luck.
