The beauteous dragonfly’s dancing By the waves of the rivulet glancing; She dances here and she dances there, The glimmering, glittering flutterer fair. Full many a beetle with loud applause Admires her dress of azure gauze, Admires her body’s bright splendor, And also her figure so slender. Heinrich Heine

I’ll be looking for you, Will, every moment, every single moment. And when we do find each other again, we’ll cling together so tight that nothing and no one’ll ever tear us apart.

And when they use our atoms to make new lives, they wont’ just be able to take one, they’ll have to take two, one of you and one of me, we’ll be joined so tight. Philip Pullman

Who would deduce the dragonfly from the larva, the iris from the bud, the lawyer from the infant? We are all shape shifters and magical reinventors. Life is really a plural noun, a caravan of selves. Diane Ackerman

The sun is lowering below the lines of the mountains that encase the town, and stars sparkle across the sky like dragonflies. Jessica Sorensen

Clouds of insects danced and buzzed in the golden autumn light, and the air was full of the piping of the songbirds. Long, glinting dragonflies shot across the path, or hung tremulous with gauzy wings and gleaming bodies. Arthur Conan Doyle

Living things tend to change unrecognizably. Who would deduce the dragonfly from the larva the lawyer from the infant? Diane Ackerman

Perhaps everything lies in knowing what words to speak, what actions to perform, and in what order and rhythm; or else someone’s gaze, answer, gesture is enough; it is enough for someone to do something for the sheer pleasure of doing it, and for his pleasure to become the pleasure of others at that moment, all spaces change, all heights, distances; the city is transfigured, becomes crystalline, transparent as a dragonfly. Italo Calvino

The beauteous dragonfly’s dancing by the waves of the rivulet glancing her figure so slender. Heinrich Heine

Their love as a dragonfly, skimming over echo park, stopping to visit the lotus. Eating dreams and drinking blue sky. Janet Fitch

I need to capture my sprite with trembling hands. Except I could crush her. Wonder how many small things of beauty flowers, seashells, dragonflies have met such a demise. Wonder how much fragile love has collapsed beneath the weight of confession. Ellen Hopkins

So, that was Nature’s way. The mosquito felt pain and panic but the dragonfly knew nothing of cruelty. Humans would call it evil, the big dragonfly destroying the mosquito and ignoring the little insects suffering. Yet humans hated mosquitoes too, calling them vicious and bloodthirsty. All these words, words like evil and vicious, they meant nothing to Nature. Yes, evil was a human invention. John Marsden

A dragonfly arrives and leaves like a change of mind. David Mitchell

I got to keep a clip for my hair. It had a pretty little dragonfly on it and I got to keep it. Mackenzie Foy

And in time it will be as though men had never come to this perfect corner of the world never called it paradise on earth, never despoiled it with their dream factories; and in the golden hush of the afternoon all that will be heard will be the flittering of dragonflies, and the murmur of hummingbirds as they pass from bower to bower, looking for a place to sup sweetness. Clive Barker

Anyone can buy a car or a night on the town. Most of us shell our days like peanuts. One in a thousand can look at the world with amazement. I don’t mean gawking at the Chrysler Building. I’m talking about the wing of a dragonfly. The tale of the shoeshine. Walking through an unsullied hour with an unsullied heart. Amor Towles

Go to sleep, baby, Mama will sing. Of blue butterflies and dragonfly wings. Moonlight and sunbeams, raiments so fine. Silver and gold, for baby of mine. Go to sleep, baby. Sister will tell, of wolves and of lambs, and demons who fell. Kim Harrison

He was becoming unstuck, he was sure of that his bones were no longer wrapped in flesh but in clouds of dust, in hummingbirds, dragonflies, and luminous moths but so perfect was his equilibrium that he felt no fear. He was vast, he was many, he was dynamic, he was eternal. Tom Robbins

Intoxications of life’s morning! Enchanted years! The wing of a dragonfly trembles! Oh, reader, whoever you may be, do you have such memories? Victor Hugo

Sophia and Grandmother sat down by the shore to discuss the matter further. It was a pretty day, and the sea was running a long, windless swell. It was on days just like this dog days that boats went sailing off all by themselves. Large, alien objects made their way in from sea, certain things sank and others rose, milk soured, and dragonflies danced in desperation. Lizards were not afraid. When the moon came up, red spiders mated on uninhabited skerries, where the rock became an unbroken carpet of tiny, ecstatic spiders. Tove Jansson

I got to keep a clip for my hair. It had a pretty little dragonfly on it. Mackenzie Foy

All these words, words like evil and vicious, they meant nothing to Nature. Yes, evil was a human invention. John Marsden

A wet dragonfly can fly again! Anaka Jones

Whoever the kid had been, whoever had the grand attitude, has finally heeded the admonishment of parents, teachers, governments, religions, and the law You just change your attitude now please, young man. This transformation in kids from flashing dragonflies, so to say, to sticky water surface worms slowly slipping downstream  is noticed with pride by society and with mortification by God, which is a fantastic way of saying I don’t like to see kids throw away their truth just because it isn’t worth a dime in the open market. William Saroyan

The dragonfly pauses in the middle of an April rain to listen to the girl who cries. The girl looks at the dragonfly and wonders what it means to pause in the middle of an April rain. Robyn

The girls chirped and chatted like uncaged warblers. They were delirious with joy. Intoxications of life’s morning! Enchanted years! The wing of a dragonfly trembles! Oh, reader, whoever you may be, do you have such memories? Have you walked in the underbrush, pushing aside branches for the charming head behind you? Have you slid laughing, down some slope wet with rain, with the woman you loved? Victor Hugo

As kingfishers catch fire, dragonflies draw flame. Gerard Manley Hopkins

The point of the dragonfly’s terrible lip, the giant water bug, birdsong, or the beautiful dazzle and flash of sunlighted minnows,is not that it all fits together like clockwork for it doesn’tbut that it all flows so freely wild, like the creek, that it all surges in such a free, finged tangle. Freedom is the world’s water and weather, the world’s nourishment freely given, its soil and sap: and the creator loves pizzazz. Annie Dillard

Time is for dragonflies and angels. The former live too little, and the latter live too long. James Thurber

Sitting on the floor of a room in Japan, looking out on a small garden with flowers blooming and dragonflies hovering in space, I suddenly felt as if I had been too long above my boots. Mark Tobey

Yesterday, a child came out to wonder, caught a dragonfly inside a jar. Fearful when the sky was full of thunder and tearful at the falling of a star. Joni Mitchell

Without constraint, without any form of mental compulsion, the act of belief becomes the freest possible projection of what resides in our hearts. Like the poet’s image of a church bell that reveals its latent music only when struck, or a dragonfly that flames forth its beauty only in flight, so does the content of a human heart lie buried until action calls it forth. The greatest act of self revelation occurs when we choose what we will believe, in that space of freedom that exists between knowing that a thing is and knowing that a thing is not. Terryl L. Givens

I need to capture my sprite with trembling hands. Except I could crush her. Wonder how many small things of beauty flowers, seashells, dragonflies have met such a demise. Wonder how much fragile love has collapsed beneath the weight of confession. Ellen Hopkins

Twisting through the thorn-thick underbrush, scratched and exhausted, one turns suddenly to find an unexpected waterfall, not half a mile from the nearest road, a spot so hard to reach that no one comes a hiding place, a shrine for dragonflies and nesting jays, a sign that there is still one piece of property that won’t be owned. Dana Gioia
