Does the romantic life of poets matter to the reader?

Do the romantic lives of their readers really inspire poets?

How could a Romantic Poet know anything at all apart from daffodils?

How could a poet, romantic or otherwise, not know about daffodils when he wrote a poem about daffodils "across the lake beneath the trees, fluttering & dancing in the breeze"?

What sort of skills would another person have, to be able to write about daffodils?

Would people with other skills even be interested in writing about daffodils?

Would the people who are uninterested in daffodils be the same ones who once made fortunes from tulips?

Why would someone only be interested in one kind of flower?

Aren't there poets who would be more interested in battles and places in foreign lands?
