I watched them across the water prance, Back and forth in sprightly dance. Liveried in emerald green, others had a sapphire sheen. It was natural choreography, by tiny acrobats As they hovered through the reed beds, hunting bugs and gnats. A mastery of flight, a ballet in the sky, How mesmerising to sit and watch, dancing dragonflies.

So very beautifully written. Dragonflies are an enchanting little creature that I too love to watch as they hover above the water.
