Wordsworth compares the daffodils to the stars as they stretched in a continuous line just like the stars in a galaxy. Moreover, the daffodils were shining (as they were golden in colour) and twinkling (as they were fluttering in the breeze) as the stars. This comparison with the stars may have a greater implication in indicating that the flowers are heavenly as the stars.
