Pond's Sun-catching Jewels

Written by: Connie Gildersleeve

Dragonflies are the jewels of the pond.
Fluttering, they land on dewy kissed leaves,
Colors shimmering reflects in the sun.

Their four wings are always catching the sun,
Inspires thoughts of fairies around the pond.
Little nymphs flitting from flowers to leaves.

Emerald spread wings basking on the leaves.
They're magical creatures of air and sun,
Beautiful turns, swoops and zooms above the pond. 

Pond's reedy leaves attract sun-catching nymphs.
