A Dragonfly

A Dragonfly

by Elizabeth Challinor


We want to fly away

Travel the world and the seven seas

We don't always like

What life throws at us

Even when we do

The blue sea

A tree swaying in the wind

A dragonfly

May please our frivolous hearts

But what about the inexplicable yearnings of the soul?

Key words: Sea; the Seven Seas; Blue; Wind; Tree; Heart; Soul; Dragonfly; Fly
