Dragonfly Habitat - Poem by Theresa Ann Moore

Nasty irritating weeds grew with might
They grew gigantically to knee height
A garden annoyance…they must be removed
Their presence is unanimously disapproved

Firm hearty tugs should suffice
Gloved hands pulling once then twice…
The stubborn spiky weeds nettled
Resisting… as a small dragonfly settled

Causing me to reconsider my intentions
The rare visitor stirred admiration…
The iridescent winged beauty stared
Invoking feelings…as though it cared

We looked at one another…greeting
What’s the reason for this meeting?
Only wonder can explain this delight
Swift wings lifted it into flight

Saddened as the marvel jets and darts
Suspended in the atmosphere… then it departs
Thoughts of pulling rascal weeds are retracted
If they stay, more dragonflies may be attracted
