Please don't pass me by
Wait with me a little while
Whilst I look, wonder and smile
You, my poetic inspiration
Maybe even for Da Vinci's invention
Did you teach the planes to fly?
You lovely, lovely dragonfly.
I can see you poised and still
On the leaf, and thus until
Blazes the kind summer sun
Until coldest winter has begun.
Branch,pond, flower and breeze,
Wait a while with me now please;
We shared the silence, but now
You've flown onto another bough.
