SECOND PLACE: NANCY HAVER – “I WANDERED LONELY AS A CLOUD”

Nancy Haver is a worker/owner at Collective Copies. Her contribution of word and art in front of the Amherst shop references William Wordsworth’s poem, “I wandered lonely as a cloud.”

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

 

Nancy’s amazing repertoire of art can be seen at her website: Nancy Haver
