Pond Life - Poem by David Wood

Silently the pond stirs from its sleep
Nymphs drifting in the calm backwater
When spring warms still waters
Amphibious delights anchor to stems
Living between two worlds
Grotesquely shedding their coat
Metamorohosis of new life
Transparent delicate wings
Upholding bright emeralds
All you can accuse them of is their
Beauty

    Why to accuse?
    Better to muse!
    Beauty makes shy
    a dragonfly!
