According to this excerpt from "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud" by William Wordsworth, what does the speaker do when he is in a reflective mood? The waves beside them danced, but they Out-did the sparkling waves in glee: A poet could not but be gay, In such a jocund company: I gazed—and gazed—but little thought What wealth the show to me had brought: For oft, when on my couch I lie In vacant or in pensive mood, They flash upon that inward eye Which is the bliss of solitude; And then my heart with pleasure fills, And dances with the daffodils.

    He gets melancholy about his life situation. He thinks of the scene described in the poem. He reads to escape from the din of city life. He writes as a release from his worries and fears.

    This is because in the first stanza he recounts his visual experience and then in the second one he describes how he is brought back to the scenario introduced by the first stanza when being on the couch in his "pensive" which means "thoughtful" mood.
