A descriptive poem about the dragonfly and his qualities.

Little flight of whimsy
Darting through space
Dragonfly, oh dragonfly
Show your true face.

With wings made of sunbeams
You sparkle and shimmer
Tell me your secret
Are you a skimmer?

Burnt coals and embers
Abide in your eyes
You conquer the hornet
An attack by surprise.

You murder the hapless
Who encroach on your rule
Without enmity or venom
For you're a living jewel.

How true a dragonfly does look like a living jewel. You know until I read your poem I never noticed it.
Thank you for this very special write.

I have read lots of dragonfly poems and I'm sure I swiped some of that stuff from the others..but we all live in the same world and must share the dragonfly. And I do love them so much. They let me pet them sometimes. How do you pet a dragonfly? Very, very gently.
