The very first line of the poem reveals that the poet, or at least the speaker, is all alone in a hilly area:

I wandered lonely as a cloud

The poet was ‘lonely’ when he was wandering about “o’er vales and hills”.

The first line of the poem states “I wandered lonely as a cloud” which indicates that the poet is by himself. He was ‘lonely’ as he wandered about “o’er vales and hills” where he spots the daffodils.
