Black and White

Dragonflies and damselflies

    Bejewelled with colours bright;

Hovering near an emerald lake;

    Glittering in the light.


They’ve wings of iridescent shades

    And striking, searching eyes.

Their agile bodies soar and glide

    Across clear, azure skies.


Chasing, skimming, flying fast,

    Their brilliant colours gleam.

Glistening, glinting in the sun

    Over lakes and streams.


They lived their lives upon this earth

    Before the dinosaurs.

Since ancient times they’ve hunted food

    Around their watery shores.


The dragonflies and damselflies

    Will make you stop and stare.

They’re living rainbows in our world -

    These artworks of the air.
