The Dragonfly.

See her flit across the pond,
A flash of green and blue,
Sparkling in the sunlight
Like a drop of morning dew.

- - -

She's darting here and everywhere,
Past lillies, reeds and flowers,
Skimming 'cross the water
As she whiles away the hours.

- - -

Her gauzy wings beat very fast
And shine with irridescence,
And the gentle buzzing sound she makes
Reminds us of her presence.

- - -

She rests just for a second
On a bullrush or a reed,
Then away she flys again
A gleaming streak of speed.
