Dragonflies spotted around the area of Reelfoot Lake, Lake County, Tennessee.
The dragon-fly is dancing,—
Is on the water glancing,
She flits about with nimble wing,
The flickering, fluttering, restless thing.
Besotted chafers all admire
Her light-blue, gauze-like, neat attire;
They laud her blue complexion,
And think her shape perfection…
~Heinrich Heine, “Die Libelle” (The Dragonfly)
