The Dragonfly

dragonflyDo you know what it is a dragonfly?

A dragonfly is a long and pretty fly that lives near streams and ponds on a waterlily leaf.

It’s like a young lady, with a thin waist, a green satin bodice, delicate wings like the chiffon of young ladies dresses, and it often arises at the edge of the leaf to look in the water, like real ladies look in the mirror.

(Translated and adapted from ABC – Petits Contes, by Jules Lemaître)
