Today I saw the dragonfly….

Today I saw the dragonfly

Come from the wells where he did lie

An inner impulse rent the veil

Of his old husk; from head to tail

Came out clear plates of sapphire mail

He dried his wings; like gauze they grew

Thro’ crofts and pastures wet with dew

A living flash of light he flew.

Tennyson
